A little surprise...

One in a million
Today a surprise: my work is featured in "Your Paintings" on the BBC website, in partnership with the Public Catalogue Foundation. The two works featured are in the Jonathan Vickers Fine Art Award collection, hence my inclusion (the colours are a little saturated though). The blurb states:

"Your Paintings is a website which aims to show the entire UK national collection of oil paintings, the stories behind the paintings, and where to see them for real. It is made up of paintings from thousands of museums and other public institutions around the country."

Heaven's Above!
I thought it may be worth a mention and link as so far 63,000 paintings are online with a target of 200,000!! So the likelihood of them being viewed could be very slim ;) Nonetheless, it made me smile. That's a lot of painting - and just the tip of the iceberg.

Woohoo! Congratulations! From all the paintings there are in the country that is no small feat. Cor.

Thank you Phil. What I really need (along with most others) is a gallery though! lol :)
