    September 2017 Judge: Timothy C. Tyler

    "Design is always triumphant in the contest for capturing the eye. The balance and flow of the subject matter flows along in this powerful piece. The artist was also careful to minimize some elements which could have destroyed the work; light, drawing and other traits also impress."
    — Timothy C. Tyler
