by Colin Richens
The application of oil paint is wonderful and the subjects so engrossed in each other that you fear to intrude.

THE MOLLIE STEVENS TROPHY FOR THE BEST MINIATURE

Crocuses and Violas by Vivien BurgessCrocuses and Violas by Vivien Burgess
Perfect arrangement of flowers, a true miniature. Wonderful use of the medium on what is a very difficult surface.

Runner up: Morning Flight by Rex Trayhorne
Missing Flight by Rex Trayhorne A scene that is always welcome, and depicted in such a small scale is quite an accomplishment. Beautifully drawn and arranged.

THE HARRY JOHNS TROPHY FOR THE MOST ORIGINAL WORK

I saw Four Boats by Suzan HouchingI saw Four Boats by Suzan Houching
A painting that makes you want to break into song! Wonderful bold flat colours, yet creating perspective and great design.

Floating Shrine Mirijima by Barbara Rousseau Runner up:
Floating Shrine Mirijima by Barbara Rousseau
Beautiful use of medium, very competent and most unusual subject. The colours contrast superbly. Not a scene many would think to paint; very bold, very unusual and it works.

THE MASON-SMITH TROPHY FOR THE BEST ACRYLIC

Another Nice Day by Rita BrownAnother Nice Day by Rita Brown
Really loose, painterly picture. It truly is ‘another nice day’. Depicting the setting sun at the end of a perfect day. Good arrangement of colours.

Symphony in Green by Pam Mason-smithRunner up:
Symphony in Green
by Pam Mason-smith
The title of the painting is exactly what it says - so have to use a series of green tints and tones of green, a colour we try hard to avoid. Perfectly captured in a delightful still life.

THE SAM HOLLAND TROPHY FOR THE
MOST IMAGINATIVE PAINTING

Fast Flowing by Judith WarbeyFast Flowing by Judith Warbey
Really good abstract monoprint. Great design and really imaginative, so nice to see good prints that are really
well thought out.


Runner up:
Underwater Flight by Colin Courtice
Underwater Flight by Colin Courtice As this is an underwater scene, I can only assume that it is from imagination? Unless Colin was deep sea diving? Wonderful arrangement and perfect use of medium.
