Wow I am really chuffed to have won 2nd prize for this painting at the Alan Reading Memorial Art Awards. Very unexpected but a welcome win to add to my artistic credentials which has been a goal this year. This art exhibition is to raise funds and awareness for cancer and cancer research so it's a plus to also be part of such a worthy show. In fact in it's fourth year I have been quite fortunate that three of those shows have either yielded a win or a sale for me. Next year I would like a first prize !
