Geoff Sargeant Finalist for Mortimore Art Prize

Geoff Sargeant is by far our longest-distance chapter member; he lives in Victoria, Australia!  And yes, there is significant colored pencil action down under, thanks to terrific artists like him.  His "Moodjar Awakes After Fire" has been accepted as a Finalist for the 2013 Mortimore Art Prize, a very prestigious award.  Last year he won Best Drawing for his "Pebble Beach, Cape Cod".  Geoff explains that moodjar is the Aboriginal name for Nutsia Floribunda, the West Australian Christmas Tree.

Congratulations, Geoff!
