February Meeting

Members' Miniature Painting Competition

The annual society painting competition was a great success with thirty two members submitting a miniature for display. The subjects and styles were of infinite variety and of a high standard so members were spoiled for choice in picking three favourites in order of preference.

All members present submitted their preferences on a voting slip and the winners with most votes were:

First Prize:  Anne Smith  'Spotted Flycatcher'

Second Prize:  Val Smerdon  'Jack Russell Terrier'

Spotted Flycatcher by Anne Smith
