Opening Night of Art on Loftus, 21 November 2014.
I was thrilled when the Art on Loftus Most Outstanding - Open Award was announced - I had won! The very generous top award was given to my mixed media painting, "Water - quiet ripples catch a shaft of light".
My inspiration was of course nature and in particular, the beautiful Blue Mountains. I experimentally combined my favourite medium of watercolour with acrylic and oil pastels and going out of my comfort zone appears to have paid off!
Here's how the Judge, award-winning artist Lyndsey Hatchwell described my work: "This work caught my eye immediately. Lovely flowing composition with skilled use of mixed media. Great atmosphere."
