Ken Bromleys Cover Competition ....

I was so thrilled this morning to find I have been short listed for this years
with my painting 
"Face of Africa" 

     This was one of two paintings, one of which sold, that had been selected for the recent SWA Exhibition at the Mall Galleries. I'm still thrilled to have been part of the Exhibition and to have been short listed now for this is fantastic....

for your 3 favourite paintings




It's amazing how inspiring it is, not only to be in amongst such wonderful art, but just to look through the many different styles and levels of other artists who have entered. It always leaves me want to pick up my brushes or maybe something new and having a go....


"Time to reflect"




  I entered this competition a few years back with "Time to Reflect" and came 3rd. In fact it was the very first time I had entered anything. I have watched how the standard of entries has got higher each year and this year I think they are even higher. Looking at the entries I'm still amazed I even made it this far, I'm certainly finding it very difficult to choose my 3 favourites.




I would urge anyone, no matter what level or where you are on your journey to enter anything and everything.. As I've found out this year, you never know until you try... and you'll be amazed at how inspirational it is to have even entered....

Thanks so much Sharon. It would be great wouldn't it, could do with the art supplies that's for sure... But having seen the high standard this year I really am chuffed to have even got this far...

Congratulations! That picture is such a beauty I am not surprised that it was chosen. You really captured something with it.
