Willoughby Art Prize

Well I found out today I was selected as a finalist in the Willoughby Art Prize. 42 paintings from 40 finalists were selected in the 2D painting/mixed media category. It's great to be in another prize show, but the highlight for me with this one is knowing that the judge, Nicholas Harding saw my work and thought it worthy, and especially so because I love his work too. He's one of few who can properly control the goop without it coming across as contrived.

Anyways, here are the pictures
