First Prize !

So delighted and excited to have won First Prize in the Create Longridge competition. Brilliant day, wonderful atmosphere and buzz around town despite all the rain! Over 70 artists took part and many sat outside painting in the rain all day. Fortunately I had a barn up on the fell to paint under. A lot of pressure to complete the painting in the day and without messing it up. It wasn’t easy.  BBC 1  filmed the event for the regional  program Inside Out on Mondays at 7.30. They interviewed me after I won I think I will be on telly sometime soon! An exhibition all the artists work is on display in The Longridge Gallery for this week until Sunday 11th September.IMG_4512IMG_4524IMG_4529
