  • Art Show Win

    I didn't take out first prize but very happy with the "Highly Commended" award with a small cash cheque!
    The big benefit was that it helps to establish myself as a local practising artist.
    Our local newspaper photographer photographed me beside the painting and if it gets published in Monday's Chronicle,
    that will put icing on top of the cake. The work selected for the award was "The Early Bird" flying over the river.

    Here are some pics taken at last night's opening.

    Many congrats. Expect that you have a warm glow.

    The beauty of not planning is that failure comes as a complete surprise and is not preceded by periods of anxiety

                Phil, Ed - Thank you both.
                They may have risen in worth, Ed but so far sales are static at nil

                Well the show only opened last night an has 9 days to run, so here's hoping.

                              John,(Zuiko), John (Bikie), Ross, Mark, OM, David. Thanks to you each and all for your much appreciated congrats and comments. Resuming painting has given me a new lease on life. Sadly, I may not live long enough to reap the benefits of their soaring value after my demise!

                              Mark - I've worn a beret since age 18. I got into the feel of one doing national service - I fantasized on parachuting into France behind enemy lines to join the resistance with Arno (Peter Ustinov), it has been part of my personna ever since! ��
