What a lovely surprise I received yesterday when one of my friends on RedBubble congratulated me on coming third in the latest Australian Artist's Art Competition for my artwork 'The Uninvited Guests'. I hadn't even realised. I bought this magazine for the first time a few months ago, although I should have subscribed to it years ago, as it truly is a wealth of information about art, artists, and exhibitions - so worthwhile. I entered the art competition on a whim, never really expecting to hear back, so this was a really lovely treat. I was also thrilled to be sharing the page with Elena Kolotusha, who's wonderful artwork I am so very familiar with, also from RedBubble and who was awarded second for her superb still life.
