The phone rang, 'This is Theatr Hafren', 'Don't forget to collect your cheque - you won second prize'. This is particularly exciting as it is the third time I have won a prize at the 'Open in Drenewydd'. I am quite glad I wasn't able to go to the prize giving, the shock would have been too much.BUT! ... how encouraging is that. It took the judges two hours to decide on the winners from the 75 entries.

Sorry about the bad cropping.
These are the two smallish painting I have put into this years 'OPEN 2011 - Theatr Hafren' Christmas Exhibition here in Drenewydd. This year they have added a restriction under the theme 'REVELATION'. I personally don't enjoy having themed exhibition but I have been able to tweak the titles a little.
So far since living in Drenewydd I have been fortunate to win both first and second prize in this exhibition ... so my hopes for this year are not too high. I think I need to win a prize that supplies me with a life times painting materials ... they do exist out there.

BETSAN painting - probably 'THE END'

Posted by Picasa

Well I think that is it. Days 4,5 & 6 have actually come up on the screen, to my great delight. If you notice, the fish have gone to sea, the mountains have changed, roofs,buildings have changed drastically or in a more subtle way. Waves added, people added, windows modified. NOW, I think that is enough.
If you want to change more ... move to Aberaeron and see it for yourself.

I'm going to be very brave and chart the progress of a large painting 28" x 36" on canvas. It is a very free painting and has to be attacked in bursts of free uncontrolled vigour. I am trying to also add texture as I go along. This is fairly new to me as.
Here are days 1-3
(Even though I have been able to get the photos to show they are appearing in unedited format).

There should be picture of a canal here.
Blogger / Picasa seem to be having a lot of trouble recently with something. There are no posted solutions ... just a lot of frustration. No one seems to be talking to us.

Well, this is clearly NOT a picture of the canal, but it does seem to be a way of getting photos onto the blog.

Recently I have been having big problems with BLOGGER and PICASA each saying I don't have an account. Now they say that the browser I have been using for years is not supported by them. I may move to WORDPRESS and start all over again.
I haven't given up yet but it does seem that every time a program gets updated it comes with complications and problems.
