Fulminant Infection Pauline Dewar PJDBotanicalArt

This month I have the belated news that the drawing “Fulminant” was equal first winner of the ACMD St Vincent’s Hospital Art Prize, 2019.

The drawing is of the effects of fulminant infection on the various organs of the body and was created at the insistence of my friend Ray when he was dying of fulminant infection last year.

Unfortunately, he did not live to see the drawing win, but he was vitally interested in the progress of its creation and gratified with the final result.

Miss you Ray.
