Deadlines Concentrate the Mind & the Brush!
"We need a good main prize for the raffle!" the chairman of the Art Festival said as we reached the final preparations for our fund raising event. "Shall I paint a picture of the Church?" I was aghast to hear my self volunteer. I spent the next day or two cursing myself - I mean it's not as though I haven't got enough to do already. But eventually as the day of the event loomed I buckled down and gathered my materials together to start sketching our local parish church.
I knew I only had a few hours spare and really had to get it right first time so I completed two paintings with slightly different colour palettes at the same time and finalised my preferred one with pen. When framed I was quite happy with the painting and it certainly drew a lot of comments (and raffle ticket sales) on the day.
Just to say, we were really thrilled to have won your Church Lane pic in the raffle on Sunday - such a lovely surprise to start the week with on Monday.
It’s absolutely beautiful and how great it is that it’s going to live in Church Lane - it’s looking very much at home already!
Lots of love
