This is a follow up to a post I did in April this year. I had completed the second half of a dyptich of my Spear Lily in June . You might remember the charcoal collage of the plant above – I have since completed the flower part of the work. Wonderful news, this work titled “Striking to Bloom” won the CENTRAL HIGHLANDS REGIONAL COUNCIL Award at The Emerald Art Awards 2014 in November. I am very excited as this is my first major win since resuming my art practise.
Not to be outdone, Carmen had a fabulous month in October with two wins for her art work. The painting below, ‘Orange Landscape’ was awarded a FIRST prize in Section 1 (Two Dimensional Art Work) at The Brigalow Arts Festival, Biloela in October. The painting pictured under that is titled ‘Pelicans in Flight’ was awarded SECOND in Category 1 (Easel Works) also at the Emerald Art Awards 2014 in November.
