Norvill Art Prize

We went on a road trip last weekend to beautiful Murrurundi; past Scone, before Tamworth. It was lovely, in between the pouring rain and catastrophic wind. (Murrurundi recorded the highest wind in the state that day). When we got to our Motel - it was announced that there was no power in town; so all we could do was go have a lie down - which was very welcome.
More welcome was the miracle of electricity which came on after an hour or so, so we could have a cup of tea and I could get dolled up and check out the Norvill Art Prize of 2010. As I was a finalist, I wanted to check out the competition - which I knew from some of the names, would be tough.
Raced into the RSL Hall (it was raining) and have a wonderful time checking out the beautiful work displayed there. Some very nice people also. Alas, I was not a winner for this one; for pictures of the prize winners check out Norvill Art Prize 2010

Some other work I particularly liked are here:
"Echoes of a Distant Land" by Danelle Bergstrom 

"Golden Gully-Hill End" by Sue Smalkowski

And some more artists to check out:

And here is the winner!

"South Coast Pastoral with Butcher Birds"
A hefty oil painting with lots of impasto by Paul Ryan
