This picture is one I did last year and it surprises me every time I enter it into a competition. I had a few things in a show and I had other things earmarked for another show. I was running out of framed pictures (plenty of unframed pictures as can be seen in my blog). I thought I will put this picture in Mont de Lancey. This is a historic homestead in Wandin. The artists had to be living in the shire of Yarra Ranges and I purely came across the show by accident in the RACV magazine. Well I received a phone call today to say I had won an encouragement award for this picture, which also came with a monetry win. Very surprised and very delighted. This makes the last week a good one for me as I acheived a first at the Pastel Society for "What about me?" My good friend Wendi received a second. Check her blog out under the blogs I am watching.
I just found out this painting sold this week at the Mont de Lancey art show.
