Look at these gorgeous paintings by Chris Hooper, oils on stretch canvas. I posted earlier on Chris was delivering paintings (the two above) to enter a show at the Riverside Centre - Brisbane Rotary Art Spectacular. Last night, Chris was awarded the "Peoples Choice Award" (apparently by an overwhelmed crowd) for 2009. Chris will now be the recipient of a $2000 cheque for his beautiful painting "Manly Reflections" and there is no doubt it will be snapped up by some lucky person...well done Chris, you are wonderful artist, with a passion and it certainly shows. We love everything you do and this award is well deserved. I think the Peoples Choice is a wonderful award to receive as it shows what the "real" person on the street really likes. Its not about what you think you should like or having something just for an investment - its whether you would have this hanging in your home to enjoy for the rest of your life. We are so very proud and honoured to have Chris in our stable of artists.
