International Artist Magazine Finalist - Inspiration!

Well, I finally made it to press,  my painting "Inspiration" was chosen as a finalist in International Artist Magazines worldwide Floral and Still life competition, 2011.  This magazine was voted the top artist magazine in the world so I am absolutely thrilled and they have dedicated one page on my work in their Oct/Nov issue, which is available on line or in bookshops now.

Inspiration is an oil on canvas 1.20 metres square and was bought by a New Zealand collector who lives on Takapuna beachfront in Auckland.  My painting truly could not have a better home and it complimented her interior colours perfectly. I have yet to tell her about the paintings achievement, I am sure she will be as proud as I am.

 The accent colours in the cushions were perfect for Inspiration!

This is a large painting but the towering wall makes it appear smaller in this photo than it really is.

Inspiration Happily at home!  

More of my work can be seen on my "paintings page" or on my website "here".
