A huge CONGRATULATIONS to Dee Shanny and Sally Downey for doing us proud at the Virginia Painting festival - Dee won second prize for her beautiful painting and Sally had a highlly commended. There were close to sixty competitors in the competition including some very well known artists so this is a brilliant achievement and well deserved. Sally and Dee have put in so much hard work in getting us all out painting every sat since January this year in all weathers and their enthusiasm is inspiring.
A big thank you also to Jim McPartland for organising a fabulous weekend in Virginia
Here are a few photos from the weekend -
John - if you ever need wildlife photos you know where to come, I know I should be following my 6 steps but I always manage to be distracted and when I dont bring the camera I miss great oppurtunities eg. the Otter at the bridge where I set up on sat!
