I applied again this year to exhibit at the Institute of East Anglian Artists Annual Open Exhibition, but unfortunately I did not receive a lovely email telling me I had made it 🙁 It cost £10 per picture to enter and, like the Association of Women Artists, who have the same procedure, it feels like […]

New Painting started: Artist Code 2017 “I Bow to my Queen”

Posted by Tina on November 29, 2020  /   no comment

I was fortunate enough to be commissioned to portray the beautiful turtle dove for a “birders” 80th birthday—being his favourite bird. The commissioner contacted me on a Monday when the birthday was the next Saturday. In that short time, all I could produce was a graphite drawing, see bottom of this post. I was much […]
