Beautiful Original Watercolour  ‘Lake Bullen Merri - Camperdown’ signed by Enid Cummins. Enid was able to raise her pocket money by entering painting competitions run by various newspapers, magazines etc. as she was the painter of the family. Indeed she was brilliant at most things, not only art. She would almost invariably win the English prize, the maths prize, swimming prize, or the prize for whatever else she attempted. Later in life, when training as a nurse she won the gynaecology prize, and the ear, nose and throat prize. She has a ready wit and a tenacity to succeed in whatever she does, but is also very caring. Her hair is a golden colour and has remained almost the same colour all her life. Born on October 18, 1918 she attended South Geelong State School and the Geelong High School. At 16 she joined the staff of Bright & Hitchcocks - a large Department store in Geelong - as a commercial artist, and attended night school at the Gordon Institute of Technology for 10 years, studying Anatomy for her art. Two large murals painted by her were displayed in the Geelong Children’s Library for many years. She has won many competitions for her art, including the Colac Art Award twice in 1981 and 1985. After her marriage to Harry Cummins, she lived in Camperdown, Victoria, and was commissioned to paint pictures of many of the old homes around that area. Harry was an Engineer and worked for many years for the Camperdown Shire Council. He has a very warm, kind personality, and gives a lot of support to Enid in her painting. Artwork comes Framed & in Excellent Condition.
