Bayside and Northern Suburbs Star - - FRONT PAGE - Jac­que­line Henry

A FITZGIB­BON artist is proud and ex­cited to have his paint­ing se­lected as a fi­nal­ist in the Bris­bane Art Prize.

Paul King, who has been paint­ing most of his life and has won many art com­pe­ti­tions, said it feels good to be se­lected from so many en­tries.

“It feels great to be a fi­nal­ist and be in with a chance of win­ning for my paint­ing Rain­bow Av­enue, Golden Downs Re­tire­ment Vil­lage Fitzgib­bon.”

Mr King did his first paint­ing at age 13 and has painted con­tin­u­ously through­out his adult life, even dur­ing times of ill health.

“I’ve al­ways en­joyed paint­ing. I’ve done more than 600 paint­ings and 300 draw­ings and have sold 120 paint­ings.”

The win­ner of the Bris­bane Art Prize will be an­nounced at the awards evening on Thurs­day, Oc­to­ber 12 from 6.30pm at the Ju­dith Wright Cen­tre of Con­tem­po­rary Arts lo­cated at 420 Brunswick Street, For­ti­tude Val­ley.
