Both magpies were selected to be used as prints in a hotel in Bedfordshire via Seeking Artists after they were seen on my facebook page - I received the royalty payment on that today which was very nice ....and the top one shown above was entered into the Seeking Artists Sunday Shares competition a few weeks ago - and won! All nine weekly winners over the Summer have been put forward to another competition for which there is a prize of a gift voucher to buy art supplies so my magpie is up again against some really excellent paintings. This is where I'm hoping you fellow bloggers can help me out! I need votes if I've any chance of winning, the competition is featured on the Seeking Artists facebook page and to vote all you need to do is like the painting, leave a comment or share so any of you who have a facebook account and would like to give me a vote I'd be reeaallly grateful!!! Here is the link to the page where you can vote.
I'd be thrilled if I won and what a treat to be able to buy a few art supplies without feeling guilty about it !! Why do we feel guilty when we spend money on ourselves I wonder? I've also had an enquiry about buying the original although I'd rather sell them as a pair - they need to stay together don't you think? I'm off to the Lakes on Friday so probably won't be posting for a few days but will have loads of scrummy photos of the Lake District when I get back - hopefully sunny ones! and maybe a couple of plein air paintings if the weather stays dry. Until then I thank you in advance if you decide to give me a vote, thanks soooo much, til next time, have a lovely weekend ..........
