I did manage a smile here but didn’t feel on top form last night as earlier in the day someone had driven into the side of my car and I’d ended up on the wrong side of the road! Not injured but a bit shaken all the same.

Penelope Timmis

The overall prize winner last night was well deserved by Penelope Timmis. Her whole submission (3 paintings) won first prize. This was my favourite. It is either Gateway or St David’s Gate ( forgive me not knowing, I did have a bad day yesterday!) I love the colours, layering and depth to it. It’s beautiful.
