Juror notes: Since this piece has a quieter approach, I debated if it fit the stated criteria for the exhibit. But the more I observed it, the more I realized how simply stated the subject was conveyed. The mood of the day is immediately apparent, and the clean, deliberate pastel application and tight color palette contribute to this strong visual statement.
