Surprising results from the Gosford Regional Show

I entered three artworks into the Margaret Smith Memorial Award at the Gosford Regional Show this year. These were Southern Cassowary, Southern Cassowary skull, and Peek-a-boo. To my surprise, Southern Cassowary and Peek-a-boo received a Commended Award each.
