Bath Revisited-Competition Winner, The Review and Some paintings

Last year I set up a competition on one of my posts after meeting the inspirational Peter Brown. The question to be answered was to decode the inspirational message Peter Brown wrote on his Exhibition catalogue for me. Laurie won! She decoded the message and her prize was that she would win a 6" x 8" painting of any location of her choice. She chose the Back of Pulteney Bridge at Bath and I completed the painting and she is the a proud owner it. You can click HERE for the details of the competition. Also Peter Brown is gearing up for a wonderful Solo Exhibition at the Victoria Art Gallery in April to June-It's going to one you mustn't miss, so if you are in the UK during that period, don't miss it!



Laurie, who also happens to work at the Bath Gallery where I had my Bath Marathon Solo Exhibition has done a review from the gallery's point of view. You can click HERE to read it.

I have only been to Bath once, that was almost 8 years ago, and yet in these lovely small paintings I recognize this wonderful city immediately. Great work! Thanks for displaying these photos. Best wishes from Bee

Great continuous work here, well done! Want to comment on the box - isn't it wonderful?! I see you are using it on a tripod, that's stable enough?

adebanji said...

Thanks Olha, it is stable, but if you are going to use one -it must be a professional and sturdy one.
