It is with great pleasure that I announce that my painting. “Rainy Sunday” was the winner of this year’s Wingecarribee Landscape Prize at Bowral Art Gallery. Many thanks to all the BDAS organisers and to Kerry McInnes, this year’s judge. Congratulations to all the other award recipients. It was a tough field so I feel grateful.

Judge’s comments: “Deceptively simple and surprisingly evocative of the movement and feeling of rain. Robyn has, with angled strokes and a limited palette, conveyed to us the sensibility of a languid Sunday looking out into a wet landscape. The darker tones in the descending marks not only suggest falling liquid but also serve to ground the painting into what could be an interior, and if so, into a possibility – into a story. this is a wondrous and masterful work.”
