1st Place: "Prey" by Anne Andersson, Oil,

Comments from the Judge:

Ambitious, successfully accomplished, evocative title
informs me while I look at the artwork. More than just a tree.
Captures something happening; one plant destroying another.

Good portrait. Makes me curious about subject. Want to know what his circumstances are and what he is thinking, not just about likeness

Simple, elegant plein aire, not overworked.
