Judge's Comment: "I am completely drawn into this painting. Attention to so many details - the fading glow of the setting sun, the shadows in the evening clouds, the subtly lit signs and traffic lights along with the headlights of the oncoming cars convince me that night is falling. The road stretched out before tells me there is still a drive ahead before I finally reach home. Skillfully drafted and beautifully rendered. A consistent and thoughtful palette. Well done."
