Ken Burke has been painting for more than 50 years and has never won an award for an easel painting – until now. This year, he decided to enter a picture he painted of Buster, a dog who belongs to his friend Corinne Cerminaro, of Liverpool. Burke saw a picture of the dog on Facebook and immediately asked Cerminaro for permission to paint Buster.
