Finalist in the Percival Portrait Painting Prize

My painting of musical theatre performer, Kerrie Anne Greenland, has been selected as a finalist for the biannual Percival Portrait Painting Prize in Townsville. 

It's a privilege to be hanging alongside such talent in this $40,000 aquisitive prize. 

Well done to Queensland-based artist Lisa Adams, who won the major prize with her intricately painted and surreal self-portrait 'Revelation' - and also to Barbara Cheshire who won the 150th local prize with her soulful painting, 'I Remember'. 

It's wonderful to see portraiture embraced so fondly by the people of Townsville. Thanks to everyone involved who makes this event happen.  The exhibition will run at the Perc Tucker Regional Gallery until the 10th of July.
