The winning painting by Jill Rogers of Minah SwansongYour Art Collection Prize 2017

Jill Rogers won first prize at the Your Art Collection exhibition with an acrylic on line canvas 'Minah Swansong'. Jill says of the work: "I like to put a feeling of adventure, history and narrative in my paintings and sometimes quirkiness.  I paint unusual aspects of the Phillip Island coastal landscape and l am interested with how we interact with nature and the weather and climate."
