I entered an art competition in May, organised by Art Events (Linda Bywaters) with the theme ‘Summer Gardens’. I felt that it needed to have movement and fun in order to appeal to a wide audience. So I produced two paintings featuring birds and water in the sunshine. Loosely based on Erik Lundgren’s University fountains paintings.
I chose the Birdbath to represent my work after asking a few people which they preferred.
I went to the prize giving yesterday given by Linda Bywaters, and found I had won first prize!
Here are the paintings :
This is the other painting but was not submitted
Many thanks to Linda and Reg of Art Events for organising the weekend and their hard work all for charity.
