So happy for you Fiona.  Your painting is beautiful.  No wonder it was taken hot off the press  ;D.

Thank you everyone - I will be stealing into John's office soon to take a photo of the framed piece :) 

I have been busy with this one in the meantime - it's based on a photo by Danny Brannigan of Wastwater in Cumbria.   The referencw photo is magnificent and I'm not sure I have done it justice. Having said that I am a little bit pleased with this one - my family originally come from this area and I've traipsed round here many times in my youth  :)


As  always crits, comments and suggestions are more than welcome.

Cheers
Fi

Wow! Great news, Fiona! I like your style. Sort of ephereal and impressionistic.
