Carlene Bullock, the President of LAS, is this year's winner of the Triple A award. Carlene's watercolour, "Trouser's Point" was done en plein air and it was this feature (amongst many others) which most impressed the judges. Carlene's painting is now acquired by the LAS and joins previous winners in our prize-winners gallery. Well done Carlene.
Gerry Jensen won the pastel award with her work entitled "Still Life on an Old Stool" and Annabel Johnson won the Junior Award with her artwork entitled "Duck Pond at Punchbowl".
