Juror’s Comments 

“Choosing the right medium can and should contribute to the message of a piece of art. In this case, the impeded vision of a rainy night in the city allowed the artist to be ‘unclear’ with regard to the medium. Because of the distinct layers of value within the composition, at first, I thought that this was a silkscreen print. But, with closer examination, I realized that it was a watercolor. The mood of this painting is successfully conveyed.”
