Shoe news

Its been a while but I've some great news about a couple of my shoe paintings!!
First off, pink shoes in my Change your shoes, Change your life series have been shortlisted in the Little Christmas Art competition. The competition was open to all artists in Oxfordshire and this painting is one of 30 from which the judges will be choosing 3.

The suede shoe painting was also accepted for inclusion in the Oxford Art Society Open Exhibition which runs until October 30th at the Said Business School in Oxford.
This is an annual exhibition and the first year I have been accepted.
I went along to the private view party last week which was opened by Helen Peacocke. You can read her review by following the link.
I took a somewhat shaky photo on my phone (not wanted to appear too gauche with a camera) and also snapped a fellow Eynsham Artist Graham Rice in front of his painting.
I was way too self-concious to agree to a picture in front of mine. There were far too many artistic luminaries about!! It was great to bump into fellow artist Barbara Gorayska....I haven't seen her since we exhibited together at the Jam Factory a couple of years ago.

All in all a good month for shoes!!
