Melissa Boughey has been announced as a finalist in the $50,000 acquisitive Muswellbrook Art Prize. Melissa says of her painting 'Tree Symphony', oil and beeswax on canvas 135 x 112cm, "Through colour harmony, structural juxtaposition, and paint process I hope to create a feeling of joy or surprise; as if the elements are all singing together and have an innate energy. This can only be achieved through a somewhat open enquiry, allowing accidents to happen and exploring colour relationships."
