I was delighted to attend the Ashburton Art Society exhibition opening this evening. As usual this exhibition features work of great diversity and a very high standard. I was honored to receive the Kath von Tunzelmann Memorial Watercolour award for my painting "Into the Light". I have to say I find the beauty of these flowers, as they emerge out of darkness into the light, truly inspirational and a great, if challenging, subject to paint. Thanks for looking.
