However, it was a busy time, and I never got around to putting up any further information, or a picture of my 'prize-winning' composition.
It was a great honor to receive the award, especially given that only one award is given each year, and we have some fantastic artisits living in our area. I had no expectations of winning, so it took me completely by surprise.

And here is my composition. I used pastels on black card, and entitled the painting 'Velvet Roses'.
I am very grateful to have been chosen for this award, and it has most certainly encouraged me to continue with my art work - time of course, is always an issue - but it is certainly something I enjoy.
