An Update!

I haven't fallen off the planet... Things have just been a little manic around here!

My latest painting is almost complete... Another layer should do it. As soon as it's ready I'll finally be able to share it here :0)

Meanwhile on Wednesday, I spent the day at the SAA (Society For All Artists) headquarters, where I had been invited having made it to the final of the Artist of the Year competition!

It turns out that my painting 'The Night is Young' actually reached the top 1% (50 chosen out of 5,000 entries) and those 50 had been divided in to 4 categories (junior, beginner, amateur and professional) and there was a mixture of hyper-realism, realism, abstract, landscape etc ... 

To top it further, I was one of those that won an award!
 It's my first award and I can't begin to tell you how much it means!! 

I'm sure most have you have already heard about this on my Facebook page, but of course I wanted to post it here too.

Meanwhile, I have MORE exciting news to share!!! But I'll share that in another post... not just yet though! Watch this space!!


  1. Congratulations Sandra! It's nice to see a real painting for a change, at a time when there is so much abstract work on show whichever exhibition you go to.


    1. Thank you so much!
      It's funny how I was so strongly discouraged to paint realism at Art School, which you may remember is why I left! I'm really glad it's being appreciated :0)

  2. So proud of you, Sandra, Romantic Truth nor simply Photographic Realism. Congratulations ... made my day!

    1. Thank you so much John!
      Ahh... Romantic truth... I like that! :0)

  3. Congratulations, Sandra! I remember you leaving Art school and I am so happy that your paintings are now so much appreciated. You really deserve it!

    1. Thank you SO much Judy!
      Yes, for me that was a very wise decision. I'm glad I enrolled but I'm even more glad that I left! :0)

  4. Congratulations on all of your well deserved recent accolades and awards!!! Your work is incredible!!


Thank you so much for leaving a comment! Where possible I will respond via email. I really do love to read them! They always make me smile ;0)
