BEST LANDSCAPE: Sue Mcphee "Vintage Gold"
Comments from Kelly Aitken: The painting radiates a vintage golden glow! Imaginative composition.!!
Sue used old newspaper print and historic stories on the background of the painting. She painted a landscape of Gabriels Gully on the canvas , consequently every scene "reflects" - a different angle for the observer.
