I was delighted to hear that my watercolour painting "Rain on the Horizon, Inis Oírr" was selected as the overall winner of the mini-competition "The Nation Paints" on RTE! If you were paying attention, you might have seen it for a few seconds behind the weather presenter on the Six One news last Sunday!
It is a beautiful painting, if I may say so myself. And I was extra chuffed to be told that it was chosen by the two judges of "Painting the Nation", Una Sealy and Gabhann Dunne.
What to spend my One4All voucher prize on is the next big question! Unfortunately, none of the Irish art stores are in. I'm going to have to go shopping, so!!
