Third Prize - The Human Form

I recently entered some work in the inaugural Alan Reading Memorial Art Awards held in Maleny. 

This award show has been established by Alan's wife, artist and teacher, Lyn. It is to benefit Bloomhill Cancer  in memory of her husband who died of cancer this year.

My entry in the Human Form gained me third prize.  A small, simple drawing, in ink on rough watercolour paper.

It was an agreeable surprise to find such a simple image caught the judge's eye, but it certainly made my day.

Other friends who won prizes are Ken MunsieMieke Van Sambeek, and Gaynor Hardinge.  (click on the links to see their work)
