Painter of Playful Light in Glass and Still Life

Great news - but I need your help!



Wow! My painting 'Sherlock' has just been shortlisted in a competition! I am SO surprised!
 
I would just absolutely LOVE it if you would vote for me - it would mean a whole lot! 

If you would like to vote, just click on this link and amongst the paintings, you will see the Teddy Bear painting shown below and my name is also underneath it :0)




The way it works is that the public vote for their favourite painting and then the winner is chosen out of the top three.

The winning painting will be on the front cover of an Art Supply Catalogue.
That would be so amazing! :0)

The chances of me winning are tiny, but get bigger with every vote, so I really appreciate your support :0)

Thank you so much to all of you for taking the time - I SO appreciate it :0)

Wish me luck :0)

(PS - Thank you so much Nicola from Pointy-Pix, who was the one who told me that I was on the shortlist! and also Lianna Yarkin who has made a wonderful link too and Crystal who has linked to Facebook! What would I do without you all? I will post some proper thank yous for these and any more links in my next post :0))

  12. Hello Sandra,
    the bear is beautifully done! So pretty!
    As for painting competitions, I do not participate for many years. My students compete and occasionally one of them wins a prize. When I was starting out professionally I ran and won many awards, dozens of awards.
    A big hug and a good week

    1. Thank you SO much Antonio! There are so many Artists who don't enter competitions for fear of rejection - but I think that it really just depends on who's judging so I think I find rejection easy by looking at it that way :0)

  13. Sandra, I am so NOT surprised this delightful picture has been short-listed. Certainly it is in great company looking at all the other works there but I genuinely find yours the most charming of them all so have given it my top vote! All the best and hope you do it!!

  14. Being your Sister, naturally I think it by far the best! But actually, I think it is way up there anyway! I think the only other two that I was immediately attracted to are the little girl reading and the Giraffes.

    Fingers crossed now that plenty of others love yours too!!
