HAS Submission Day

My two and a half hour journey to get there, thanks Roy, was well worth the effort, because as usual I had the best day. Being organised by Mike Radley soon got the job done, as he is very skilled at directing folk in a pleasant but authoritative way!

The judging panel this year were :- r-l
Roger Dellar
Keith Hornblower
Keith West*
John Spielman (not pictured)

They were way too nice this year and put too many pictures through, which meant going through the 'middle' pile and rejecting about two thirds of them! I got one of mine in.......and then I didn't :(
But I did get four of my six selected, one of  which I don't have a photo of! 
 Regatta  7" x 5"  Monotype
 Wrapped  16" x 16"  Oil
Comfort  10" x 12"  Oil

The best bit, though, was the announcement of the 'Best in Show' winner, my very best friend for 20+ years Stella Green, for her painting of dead flowers! 
Sorry about the awful photo, doesn't do it justice at all. I kept getting told off for moving it but I was trying to eliminate the reflections, and the light from the window.
3D Winner Is this piece called 'Queue of Life' which I think is absolutely delightful. 
I'm sorry I only have half a story, I do not have names or pics of the other prizewinners or their work. I shall rectify that later.
*I am not sure that this is the right Keith West, but he seems the most likely suspect!. I shall amend, or delete this bit, when I have found out.

Congratulations! After all your concerns about what to enter you did manage to come up with four winners. I especially like the mono print. Terrific! You must tell me that process.
