For my entry “Gateway to the Mountains’ I was honoured with first place in the Painting division at the 2015, 50th Annual Exhibition for the Active Arts, Taupo. Once the exhibition was officially opened I had the joy of seeing it sold within a minute. Wow! May the new owners have many happy years of enjoyment.
