Juror Lori Putnam's Comments:
Beautifully drawn with wonderful use of gradation and values. The monochromatic color scheme works so well here, and I love the warms against the cools in both the shadows and the lights. The sense of space between the background and the skull is expertly handled. Values in highlights and reflected lights are perfect with out exhausting the entire value scale. This is one of those times when placing the image right in the middle was exactly the right thing to do, and cropping the shadow shape at the left gives this painting a modern edge.
