Mr Hockney is a winner!
Frankie Prize in the inaugural Reginald Portrait Prize for Softies, brainchild of the wonderful Sue Halliday and hosted by the Melbourne CAE. It is my absolute belief that any of the finalists could have won a further prize. They were all fantastic and so incredibly varied that judging them must have been a very difficult task indeed (Have a look at the Reginald site for full catalogues of entries and finalists). The overall winner was an exquisitely detailed Bjork by Dainy Sawatsky. I had a fantastic time at the prize ceremony on Friday evening. It was wonderful to meet the finalists, and MOST wonderful to meet the incredibly talented and very sweet Ms Cat Rabbit.
