Judge's Comment: "The massive scale of Island-City Pirate (48 x 60 inches) allowed the artist ample space to "climb inside" this scene. By detailing the reflection in the sunglasses against the facial expression Christine has placed a story within a story. The macro view of the models countenance leaves the viewer wondering what is sparking his unusual appearance..perhaps the glare of sun on water? Clues to the answer can then be found in the reflection in the lens of his Guess shades. We see details of the boat's interior skewed by the curve of the lens. We also see confirmation of the brightness of the sun's glare on the water as well as the wake of a passing boat. Every successful painting tells a story and leaves the viewer wanting more without giving away all the details. This painting meets all these criteria."
