Congratulations to Valerie Rixon who has been selected as a 2023 finalist:

Print title Lady in Red

This painting was inspired by Valerie’s experience in designing and manufacturing women's clothing. Valerie loves the nature of different fabrics and how they fall and flow.

The title of the painting came from a favourite song by Chris de Burgh.

Visual Description – An acrylic painting of a woman walking from right to left in a red dress and red heels on a white background. The lady is not painted, the only thing painted is the red dress and high heels. The dress is just below knee length with sleeves and a collar with a darker red belt.
