I was awaiting the arrival of a model and her husband, I had bought a peasant shirt for her to wear, the red hairband, different props to prompt a visual interaction between and her and the husband.  First she was an hour late, then three.  I called, she had forgotten about me and my props.  So I set up the camera on a tripod, put on the clothes I had found for her to wear, grabbed one of the wishbones I had saved as a prop, and without thinking, automatically reached it up for G-d to grab the other end.

Judge's Comment: "This painting springs to life by masterful expression of a vision through its wonderful execution: exceptional drawing, controlled edges, and thoughtful modeling within a wide tonal range. The sum is greater than the parts in a perfectly balanced composition that leads the eye to explore, from the figure to the wishbone. Beyond the technical aspects, we're drawn to this painting by its narrative. She emerges from the shadows to summon the powers of celestial judgement."
