Del­yse’s art a de­light

Comment News (Gosnells) - - News -

KENWICK’s Del­yse Grey­goose has won the City of Gos­nells Com­mu­nity Art Award and Ex­hi­bi­tion’s Primewest Peo­ple’s Choice Award.

More than 240 peo­ple voted in the cat­e­gory at the ex­hi­bi­tion last month, with Mrs Grey­goose’s oil paint­ing Don’t Look Up a clear favourite.

The paint­ing, which por­trayed a dog with a mag­pie swoop­ing close to its head, was based on a pho­to­graph Mrs Grey­goose spot­ted in the news­pa­per.

“It was a sur­prise and a shock when I heard I won. Paint­ing keeps me out of mis­chief a bit, I do it be­cause I can,” she said.

Mrs Grey­goose, who has lived in the same Kenwick home for nearly 50 years, has also taught a paint­ing class at her lo­cal church since 1988.
