This is a cross-post from my art blog. It’s relevant here because the painting that got me shortlisted was orignally inspired by the Mervyn Peake Awards (Parkinson’s UK) theme, “Inspire”. I’m also posting it here because you can help me – there is a Reader’s Choice vote online and I’m told that it is hotly contested and I should ask all of my friends and acquaintances to vote for me.
The UK magazine Artists and Illustrators runs an annual artist of the year competition. I entered it and was delighted to hear that the judges had shortlisted my Shelves of Inspiration. There are 50 artists on the shortlist, and all of the pieces will be on display 23 – 28 Janaury 2017 at the Mall Galleries, London.
Part of the competition is a Reader’s Choice vote. If you want to vote, you can see the whole shortlist here:
