I'm going to be in a Calendar!

No....dont get excited...I will NOT be wearing a bikini or in one of those "naked lady "calendars....oh bosh!I hear you say?????

I entered a local challenge from our Art Society to enter a Newcastle themed painting to win a space in a calendar that the Society is creating to raise money for itself and the Helicopter Rescue Service for 2010.
There were 43 painting presented last night at the general meeting of the Society and over 60 members voted.
I was lucky enough to receive enough votes to get a place!
A small win along the road.
It means that I will get some exposure!
The picture that won was of my "Stockton Ferry".

It was nice to be voted on by other artists and get recognition for my work - especially as I am a relative "newbie" to the group. Sometimes you have to "do your time" in groups like these not matter how good your work is!

30cm x 40cm
Acrylic On Canvas

I was very inspired by a photo taken by a friend of this doorway at "Stroud Monastery". This is part of a building created out of mudbricks to house nuns - a former convent which is now being used as a retreat / convention centre.This photo had a great feel and is the door way to the chapel which is situated in the middle of the complex of rooms.
