Good news folks, one of my paintings at the local exhibition got 'Peoples choice', and another got 'Sponsors' choice, unexpected, but pleasing all the same.

Here you go Sharon, I have posted the two paintings as requested. The "Lone Heron" won the sponsor's award (Reference photo was taken by Fiana Gerzon (PMP), and the rusty old VW won the Peoples choice award - who would have thought, a rusty od car out in the middle of the bush and multiple people wanted to buy it. The reference was taken during wild flower season, so it did make quite a nice picture.
