Figureworks 2015

I was delighted and honoured to have my coloured pencil painting “To Make a Long Story Short” named the  first prize winner in this year’s Figureworks 2105 art exhibition. The painting depicts my mother-in-law gazing out her window into what could be her future or it could be pondering a life richly lived….you decide. The show continues until Dec 6 at 2 pm.  More info at http://figureworks.org/2015/show-2015.html
