Charity Fundraising

I have recently participated in a Charity Auction to raise funds for Great Ormond Street Childrens Hospital. This is one of my watercolour paintings that I donated, and a flurry of bidding activity towards the end resulted in nearly £820 being raised. My thanks are due to the generous bidders in support of this worthy cause.

I now need to buckle down and start painting ready for next years round of exhibitions. I also undertake commissions, so if you may be interested just give me a shout. No obligation or high pressure selling.

Competition win

In addition to my artwork I also take a lot of photographs, apart from providing source material for my paintings they are pleasant images in their own right. I submitted a few for the Wildlife Trust photographic competition, and one of my images won the Reserves category and also came 3rd overall.

Depicting Brent Geese coming in for a landing it means I shall be off to the prize presentation next week.
