Patching's 2016 Competition.

Posted on Sat 16 Apr 2016

I have just heard that I have had an oil painting accepted for entry to this year's competition. There are a mere 70 selected for each of the two categories from all the entries so I hadn't expected to hear anything.

Needless to say, I am delighted even if my entry doesn't win a prize, but one never knows. Glad I entered now, it was a last minute decision on my part.

Lleyn Peninsular - Oil on canvas 30 x 24in.

  • Many congratulations. I like the patchings festival and plan to go again this year. Living in tropical Leicester I'm a hop skip and two jumps away
