from Mr Peter Ochsenbein
Wonderful news and many congratulations go to Christine for winning this award. Christine has been awarded "First Prize" in the Still Life section of the Darcy Doyle Art Awards at the Gold Coast a couple of days ago. The show has different judges each year, however, Christine has won this award three years out of the last four (the other year, she came second). They broadly hinted at the award ceremony that she should stay out of it next year!
Here are a couple of images to share with you, it shows Mrs Darcy Doyle presenting the award to Christine, the other image shows Christine with the winning painting and the top image shows the generous donor of the award, Mr Peter Ochsenbein, director of The Mudgeeraba Foundation . We are absolutely thrilled for Christine to win this award once again. I am amazed by the amount of award winning artists are represented through The Manly Gallery, and we always have Christine's beautiful oils and pastels on display.
