***COMPETITION IS NOW CLOSED***
Hello Rona! Myself and my two max cats [Agatha and Christie] are loving everything that you do. The Sergeant is a husky looking Gentleman, and we have decided he would make a lovely accompaniment to our femme household. And he’ll never leave the seat up!
I also love a murder mystery. 🙂
I currently have a jar next to my coffee machine labeled ‘Sergey and Leonid’ and every time I make myself a coffee I put my loose change in there in the hopes of saving up enough to purchase a print of one of the two. For the moment, I’ll have to be happy with the work-in-progress appropriation I have of the two tattooed on my arm! I would be gobsmacked to win your bundle of special stuff, but I’m happy in the knowledge that the Sergeant would be looked after wherever he ends up. Thanks for doing the shit you do,
That is very cute. Thank you.
We have “Cutter” guarding our front door. We bought him after we were burgled. No problems for over 6 years with “Cutter” looking after us………………………..However I’m always a bit nervous about the back door………Just the job for Sergeant at Arms ! Our standard poodle Percy just doesn’t have the menace required. He’s more like one of the Three Stooges, comedy is his caper not security.
I have been a massive fan of your work ever since I started art school a few years ago. I still remember the first time I went to your exhibition I said to myself. ‘I cant wait until the day I own one of her prints’ Now I own 6 of them! Your work is absolutely amazing. The Zulu is getting a little lonely and I think Sergeant at Arms would make a great companion and addition to my growing collection. 😊 Thank you!
Thank you Robert for being such a great champion and supporter of my art. 🙂
When I’m feeling dogged
(Head in a vice
Knife in the heart
Can’t find a park)
A dose of your doggies
So In control)
I’m put at ease
Fabulous, thank you.
There would be heaps of rubby pats and licky wags for everyone if I won this swag of Freddy-licious RonaGoodies.
I’d give up chasing cars and possums and happily stay at home so I could gaze at the hugely handsome Sargent at Arms if he were to hang on my wall!
My paws find tea towels tricky so I might use my canine wiles to magic this one into a pillow for my doggie basket.
And I promise I’d share those woof-tactic badges with all the puppies I know!
Your work is hound-tacular and should be in every kennel on the planet!
I promise I’d try to be a good dog if I won this stash!
Thank you for your dog-tastic response.
I’m a new (huge) fan of your work and would very much love to give the print to my partner, Jaz, who has recently had your work tattooed on her arm (with your kind permission, of course). It would certainly make me the best girlfriend ever and we’d live happily ever after. However, I wouldn’t part with the tea towel. That’d be all mine!
That is lovely!
I love the ‘tough’ look and would enjoy living with your artwork…
Very sweet of you to say Yvonne.
Freddie looks a tad bored now. I’d like to relieve him of his duties by taking these goodies off his hands (paws?), I’d offer him a carrot in return.
That is very amusing Terence. 🙂
Hey Rona, we would love to win Sergeant at Arms to hang out with our very precious and very lonely ‘knuckleman’ who we purchased last year. You can also never have enough tea towels, even though Jude won’t be banished to the third draw down, they will get to hang out with our rabbits Lola Party Boy and Foxy, our dog Daisy and cats Harry and Molly Oh and our two kids Greta and Hessie love the badges too,
You have quite a menagerie there Sam – what fun!
I so love your work, and I’ve just bought my first piece – your generous Xmas special, Creme. He’s looking mighty fine situated here in Auckland, but I’d love to add more Rona Green to my whare. Keep up the great work Rona!
Thank you for your encouragement and support of my work Emma.
The Sargeant would complete a set of four Rona prints to represent each of our family members. The Sergeant would be an accurate reflection of my four year old’s personality. The badges I would add to the State Library Victoria ephemera collection alongside some other excellent badges. We need more Rona in the Library’s collection. The teatowel will bring a whole new lease of life to our kitchen. I just want it all!
I appreciate your enthusiasm Justine!
I would love to win the Sergeant at Arms, so I could let myself being lost under his gaze, while eating some liquorice and ice-cream.
What else could I say…
Have a nice day.
Sounds like a plan! 🙂
Love the Sergeant at Arms even though he is not showing off a six pack and a pouch! Just need to see more of him!
He is a bit introverted. 🙂
Woof Woof Woof
Coming in loud and clear. 🙂
Winning the bundle of special stuff would allow me to share your wonderful work in a more tangible way with my senior art students. We are studying your work in my class this year & this would be an amazing enhancement to what I have already planned.
Thank you for sharing my work with your students Fay.
I would love to win this special bunch of stuff coz, I LOVE dogs, LOVE your work, though I hate drying dishes, if I have to, and I do, I would be happier doing it with this very cool tea towel and as for the badges, I already have a couple so not to be greedy, I will be prepared to share these round!
Thank you for the love Andrea. 🙂
Long time fan of your work Rona and “Sergeant at Arms” speaks to me, (I can’t tell you what he’s saying, it’s kinda saucy!).
He is a lovable character.
I’m a fan because your work has a style that is uniquely yours Rona.
Thank you for the compliment Nicola.
Love your work – have a couple of your pieces but would love more and it would be great to win Sergeant at Arms! I have bought a couple of your tea-towels – for me and also for gifts which are always well appreciated.
Your support of my work is much appreciated Linda, thank you.
Because I’m a terrible drawer (even the latest colouring-in fad has beaten me!) but a great badge wearer, dish dryer and art gazer. Or maybe our super chook Daphne could don a tea towel cape…
Plus I’m jealous of my friends who keep buying your work.
Have a fab 2016 Rona.
Ignore that colouring book fad – let you own doodles free!
Soooo love your work Rona.
Many thanks Susan.
Cos I am special too. Or rather would be if I won,
Point taken. 🙂
CEO Olivia would love to wear that pawsome teatowel as Shane so elegantly does 🙂
We love your work Rona! and your sense of wit 😉
Good luck all to all the entries!

Thank you for entering the competition Olivia. 🙂
My pleasure Rona!

When I was an army cadet in high school I’m sure Sargent at Arms was in charge of the Qstore. Ah how we would love to get a new belt or khaki jumper just to hear him bark about the good olde days back when he could judge distances and fetch a bone. He was the company champion of the knife fight and could toast a mean marshmallow. Cadet camps were far from boring when Sargent at arms was about. He is just what my life is currently missing.
That is hilarious Rose!
Because I am fan who needs a kick start on my Rona art collection and this would be the perfect way to start said collection 😀😍
Am flattered you are keen to start a collection.
I’ve been using an old t-shirt to dry my dishes.
You totally rule.
Because I’m a little bit of a fan, I can never have to many Rona’s and there is always something appealing about an arty tea towel.
Thanks Tarli. 🙂
Woo! I need your Sargent At Arms to stand over me and make me PRINT, PRINT, PRINT DAMNIT! xxxx
Love your work Julie. 🙂
Makes my heart sing.
Makes me laugh.
Reminds the inner and outer child of wonderment.
Thank you Rona Green
Thank you. 🙂
Your art is like that first sip of beer on a day off work… but for my eyes. Don’t stop making art, us print geeks and animal/tattoo lovers will take it personally. Cheers, Bec
Schweet! Thank you Bec.
Owning a Rona Green print is a life goal. That is all I can say !
That is extremely complimentary.
Bundle it up Rona. our sweet girl Smudge would look super human donning a tea towel swanning the park in Rona Green, we will be the talk of parklands.
Your work is always a hit in our house!
Thanks for being a fan of my work Sumi.
No sad stories from me, so my answer is ‘I can NEVER have too many of Rona’s works! ( I also have a bare wall which needs adornment )
Good luck everyone!
Very flattered by your keenness Glenys.
Basically because of what everyone else as said BUT especially because our ol’ dawg has just had an eye removed (glaucoma) and ‘Sargent at Arms’ would cheer her (and us) up no end!!
Oh Peter, that is no good. I hope your dog heals quickly after the surgery. Best wishes, Rona.
OOOOO Rona Green goodies yes please! You know I am going to dress my dog & cat in the tea towel & instagram the hell out of them, possibly annoy the crap out of them too. But you know I’m only human. 🙂 x
I love following the adventures of your pets on Instagram!
These guys would be a great addition to the studio space I am setting up for myself in the next month. I could hang these guys above my printing press, and give the buttons away to visitors of my studio to spread the Rona Green love.
Congrats on the new studio space Keren, enjoy working in it!
Rona, truly you’re work speaks to me; to my heart and to my sense of humour. These special items will be great talking points in my studio (Architecture and Set & Costume Design for stage) and life at large. You capture the character, personality, attitude of people and animals alike, somehow merging them highlights the subcultural attitudes of each species.
I’d love to spread the word about your beautiful prints here in Sydney. Happy New Year!
Thank you for your kind words Tobi.
Your work brings me joy, simple.
I also wear one of your small badges on my coat and the conversations which happen with random people when they spot this brightens my day.
That is lovely to hear, thank you.
I have two badges of yours that you gave me about 5 years ago. They are pinned to my coat and have started to rust. I would love to win this competition so I can have more. The tea towel is the best tea towel I have ever laid eyes on and the print I could add to my beautiful collection of Rona Greens here in sunny West Hampstead.
Damn rust! Thank you for being such a great supporter Harriet.
Hi Rona! Was really inspired by your talk and meeting you at the recent Print Triennial. It is wonderful to see an established artist helping others to grow and succeed in the art world. Love the precision of your work…..being a lino nut myself I appreciate the skill it takes to make your images so crisp. All the best for a creative and fun New Year.
Much appreciated Bridgitte, all the best to you too.
dogs are just dyslexic gods. it is us who needs to learn their language. often all they say is “HEY!”
They are wonderful friends.
Ohhh I’d love to win some of these Rona goodies… especially the Jude tea-towel so I can put it on my cat Didak and he can look as cool as Shane! I’m in process of purchasing Leonid print at the moment but would love more collections from my favorite artist.
Shane is thrilled to be the poster child for cool!
Hi Rona, I replied incorrectly to this email – I rejoined. so I am resending my response to your competition.
Sergeant at Arms would be a perfect companion for Jaspre, and I would then have two linocuts, one for each of my grandchildren. The tea towel could cover my sleeping computer screen and the badges could travel the world pinned to various shirts and coats and bags. Kind Regards and Happy New Year, Bronwyn Minifie
All the best to you too Bronwyn for a fab 2016!
A tea towel with one of your images on it…would make my life complete…no pressure…;)
Love your work…always…xxx
Aw, thank you Debra, much appreciated!
Love you artistic talents. I am a budding artist & printmaker, who is also fanatical about Dalmatians, being an owner & breeder! I would sooooo looovveee to win one of your Dalmatian prints to add to my collection of artworks, by wonderful artists like yourself, that I have displayed around my home! 🙂
Hi Debby. I just started cutting a new lino block of a Dalmatian yesterday! Thank you for your interest.
Your work is COOOOOOL! so, I want to own some of it!! x
Thank you for saying Julie!
I’m looking to update my cape. I think a few buttons would complement my new look for 2016. I could also stare at a lovely print for hours or until I fall asleep.
Yours in anticipation,
Harvey the Wondercat
Thank you for entering the comp Harvey! 🙂
I really like your work so would like to win some special stuff of yours
Appreciate it, thank you Sue.
Rona. What can I say. I am a huge fan of your work. I have been since Art School in 1998. I am the proud owner of quite a few of your pieces (as you know) and I cannot imagine my life without those dear friends. Is it greedy of me to want more? Well then I’m greedy. More of Rona’s work in my life = pure joy. That about sums it up. Simple.
Your support is very much appreciated Jocelyn!
I am a huge fan of your work Rona, i studied printmaking at RMIT school of art, and every year the fund raising auction would take place, and your print would bring huge blessings to our fundraising as people would fight to win your print.
I honestly just absorb your work for years always wishing I owned a little piece. Uni days long gone plus 2 kids for me , we would love a Bundle of stuff to grace our home forever 🙂
I am flattered a good impression of my work has stayed with you, thanks for commenting Emma.
I’m a fan.
Hey Manfred, thank you!
what a way to start off the year! being able to dress my cat Alfred up in a tea towel just like Shane! haha that would be quite a site! 😉
It is how all the fashion forward pets are getting around these days Jess!
