Judge's Comment: "For such a small painting, this artwork possesses a lot of power. That power is in the simplicity of its composition, the unity of the color palette, the balance of a range of values, and a mood created with the greatest economy of means, even in the size of the canvas. I can imagine the geese’s flight to that place as I look out over the shore-lands into the distance, as the artist leaves room in this work for my own interpretation. I am particularly interested in how the individual geese are specifically related to the ground plane and each other: through reflections, shadows, and connections with the shapes of their fellows. Their dark necks, tails and legs visually 'pop' their shapes starkly against the wet sand. Impressionistic!"
