Rhonda paints her way to success

THERE is a lot of talent on the streets of the Rose City after seeing the glorious paintings spread across the walls of the show pavilion.

Rhonda Kraak won the Champion prize with her pastel painting which chief steward Lyn Brown said had great tone and the judge, Elise Dawson from Woodenbong, remarked that it was a beautiful painting.

“The tone is all correct it gives a beautiful sense of depth looking into the distance,” Mrs Brown said.

She said there were a lot of great entries at the show again this year with a great number of exhibits.

“I always like the art at the show because they are mostly amateurs – you can really see the enthusiasm in the paintings,” she said.

Mrs Brown said Nicole Malone had done really well winning the Still Life section with her painting of pears in a fruit bowl and came second in the Portrait or Figure section.

She said the Warwick Show was a great opportunity to show the range of talents Warwick and surrounding district residents have to offer.

“It just shows all the talent in the area and the range of talent.

“From amateurs to the professionals they are all here,” Mrs Brown said.
