An Award!

Remember the exciting news I shared with you a few posts ago, having made it through to the final of the SAA Artist of the Year, 2016 competition? The painting was initially one of 160 chosen out of over 3,000 entries, to make it through to the final round of judging. (You can read about it here)

Well I have been expecting my painting to arrive back at some point as I never imagined for one moment it would make it any further... But I was completely gobsmacked when instead, I received a letter in the post telling me that my painting was one of the final (48) paintings picked, to be hung in a 3 month exhibition!

And as if that wasn't enough, I also learned that I had received an award!

Out of over 3,000 entries, it's quite some achievement and I have been smiling so much about it that my face actually hurts! 

...'Sandra Busby, Award winning Artist'... 
Lol, Sorry, I just can't help it! Please feel free to give me a slap ;0)

Needless to say, I have been singing it from the roof tops, so if you follow my Facebook Page, you have probably already heard, but naturally I had to share it here too...

...I'm so looking forward to going to the open day and seeing all of the other paintings too!

Anyway, it's time to get my head back down from the clouds and get back to my easel after an unavoidable 3 week break. There's nothing like receiving that kind of news to inspire me, that's for sure! :0)
