Coffee BreakGood news! My two paintings, both are "shortlisted." One is for Victoria Cancer Council Art Prize 2012. I sent the work, "Daffodils : strength, hope, love" to Melbourne.
A3, double mounts, beautifully framed,
30% of $500 goes to Victoria Cancer Council.Daffodils have the strength to survive winter and bloom beautifully in spring, passing on life to the next generation. They look fragile, but in fact are strong. One day, NSW Cancer Council volunteers gave any patient daffodils in a treatment room (*I do not have cancer, but have the same treatment). Sitting for long hours bores patients. But suddenly these daffodils brought us smiles and joy. Later, I sketched the daffodils. Medical doctors and my friends, too, love this work. If anyone wants to be a "step parent" of the daffodils, the Cancer Council and I would be very happpy.
Hahaha, cartoons are often my doodles. A very good brain exercies and relaxing!
Well, back to the topic on another shortlisted work. Not a finalist yet. The work must get through a second round. To be honest with you, I'm ready for rejection and will enjoy lemonade! But whatever the result would be, I'd celebrate my try and it did very well so far for the very big competition.
I'll keep up! Thank you for warm cheers. I'll send you, too, warm cheers.
Friends, Happy Painting!
