A little over a month ago, I entered one of my paintings into the Fife Art Exhibition.
That painting was Brotherly Love
It was expertly framed by Elite Framing
I didn't win a prize in the judging - but because I'd entered, I had the opportunity to partake in some workshops, gratis. These were paid for by the sponsor, Shell.
The first workshop I attended was on with the renowned glass artist Keiko Mukaide.
Under her tuition, I produced these two pieces.
The second workshop was with the acclaimed ceramicist, Simon Ward.
In this workshop we learned how to create a design and transfer it to china.
I did this on a mug, using the words "Come Home" and showing one prodigal koi returning to his friends.
These works too are now in the exhibition, which has another week to run.
If you are visiting Fife within the next week, pop into the Lochgelly Centre - and you will see a stupendous exhibition with much talent on display.
My painting was created on St Cuthbert's Mill Saunders Waterford Paper, using W&N paint.
The day off that wasn't
