Some great news today! My painting 'High And Mighty' has been shortlisted for the DSWF Wildlife Artist Of The Year 2010. The competition is open to professionals and amateurs worldwide, there are literally thousands of entries which are judged by a panel.
The shortlisted entries will be exhibited at the Mall Galleries, London 24th-29th May where they will be for sale. This is a high profile exhibition and anyone who is anyone in wildlife conservation circles will be at the preview evening, where 50% of sales go to the DSWF to help endangered species around the world.
Last year I created several pieces with this competition in mind and selected two to enter. The other one I entered was this pencil work, 'Pride', which actually I thought stood a better chance of getting in. Still, what do I know!
This is a great coup for me and I am thrilled to be shortlisted. You never know I may win a prize! although to be honest, just being shortlisted is a win for me.
