Congratulations to Rose:
"I've been absent from VAA for quite a while, suffering from Vertigo and I can't think straight to do any Assignments - plus have had to deal with other serious pressing issues. *I have managed, though, to bury myself in painting as a sort of therapy, and I've been entering competitions and, surprisingly, have had some success this past 12 months. *
I won 1st prize in a local Council Art Prize for "Bin Night" I won $1000AUS!!. *
Then I entered the Sydney Royal Easter Show (a NSW State Award) and won 3rd prize for this painting - "A Photo to Remember" $350 prize money. *
I recently entered a National Award (Ravenswood Australian Women's Art Prize) and was a Finalist. I sold my painting (12"x12") there for $350AUS on Opening Night. *I
have also exhibited a few paintings in 3 other local Art Exhibitions and sold a couple of paintings. I have 2 more in a current Exhibition. "
Well done Rose!!*
