On the offchance that anyone still looks at this blog, I thought I might as well blow my own wotsit and ask everyone, if you can spare a few moments away from what most of the British media would have you believe is the most important event of the year, if not ever, to please vote for my Bald Eagle painting, which has made it to the shortlist for the Ken Bromley Art Supplies Cover Competition: http://www.artsupplies.co.uk/covercomp/
OK, it's not the Turner Prize or anything, but it's nice to be shortlisted all the same! It has to be said as well that it's a fairly long shortlist, but they had 'hundreds' of entries, so even getting in the top 90 has to be better than a slap in the face with a moist mackerel.
The original is still for sale here, and shown below in its frame (at a slight angle to avoid reflections off the varnish):
Thank you for your time - that's probably it for the next six months...
