Exciting wins for Carmen and I at the Emerald Art Gallery. The Central Highlands Regional Art Awards had their opening night on this past Saturday 15th July and the lovely Glenda from the Gallery was kind enough to ring me on Sunday morning with wonderful news. My painting ‘Mt Morgan Dam No 7’ (featured in this blog in June) was awarded 1st Prize in the Easel Based Works section of their competition. Even better news was that I was not alone in the winning department with Carmen taking out 2nd prize in the Works on Paper section with her work titled, ‘Blackdown Landscape’.
A big thank-you to my brother Bob, for taking me kayaking on the dam at Mt Morgan (a very special place) and also for assisting me in framing the finished work.
