Judge's Comment: "Zinnias are a tough subject to paint. They are so iconic, that we often tend to paint our idea of them rather than the reality. Not only has this artist captured the reality, but the composition is also carefully controlled and balanced through the use of color saturation and value drawing our attention to hero flower amongst a cacophony of competing forms."
