Short listed for an art competition!

Well if you don’t enter..you’ll never win is the old adage. So I keep on doing that, but there are so many great artists out there that it’s difficult to stand out…then all of a sudden when a painting does get the nod..it’s a very unexpected surprise. My blue floral vase wasn’t that great, or so I thought but other people saw it differently to me. That’s the beauty of art, that once it’s out there it’s up to the wider world to decide. After seeing the Van Gogh Alive Exhibition I realise that only he saw the value in his own works. He is quoted as saying that one day his paintings will be worth more than the paint that was used. A lot of painters are like me and we keep going because it’s what we are, not what we choose to be.
