Jenny 8" x 12" Oil

Jenny is the youngest winner of the One Show exhibition, 10 years old. Poor Jenny, her moment of glory snatched away from her. Every one got a chance to speak, to say a word about their painting, except Jenny, whose award was shoved at her very unceremoniously. They had run out of time! I did feel for her.

I gave up with this one, although I do actually like it's unfinished state. I started off wrong, colours, support, you name it, I got it wrong, to paint a child. But instead of starting again, I stubbornly kept on going.

This is a lovely one of the little girl with the doggy portrait. Hope she sees it - she looks so happy. Shame her go was so rushed though.

I still get tingles when I think of your tv appearance! And this one of Jenny is so good - and the one of Nelda is awesome.
