Among our conversations have been many that centered on the essential risk-taking element in making art, the need to constantly push oneself beyond known barriers. Nothing is gained without this leap, in terms of finding one's voice in the fray, in terms of finding that singular thing you are meant to say.

A message from the judges: ​​Doesn't this image of a boy in a window sill contemplating a cityscape conjure feelings of hope and vision?​ I like the composition and contrast from the distant buildings and the relaxed pose in the foreground. ​
