Further to my last blog post (Harrogate Mercer 2012 Open Art Show submissions): I’m pleased to announce that, on 16th September 2012, I won first prize (from among 600-700 submissions with my acrylic painting ‘Nithering Almscliffe.’ Its only the second time I’ve entered this local, but prestigious, competition in Harrogate so I am delighted to have won. It was kept entirely secret until the announcement on preview night and so was completely unexpected. I wish I’d done my hair and put some make-up on!
I’ve included some media images, and links, below. *Entries by other artists have been obscured for copyright reasons.
The original painting can be viewed at the Harrogate Mercer Art Gallery 16 Sept 2012 – 20 Jan 2013.
