People's Vote results
'Self praise is no praise'. I had a friend at school who used to say this all the time and all these years later it still rings in my ears! I've lost count of the number of times this drawing has been posted, but, well, I was delighted and surprised to hear that 'Paul' was voted 5th in the People's Award of the UKCPS Annual Juried Exhibition. The results are on the UKCPS blog here. I thought the number of votes overall was quite low, so it was interesting to see the breakdown. I'm quite chuffed about it, because the standard was so high, and those votes could quite easily have gone to many more drawings rather than mine. (And I can tell you it wasn't my brothers swinging the vote because we talked about the rights and wrongs of voting for your sister on the walk back to the station!) So, if you are reading this and you voted for me, thank you very much, I'm really honoured and, most of all, I'm very pleased that you liked it!
Many congratulations to Carol Bramley who won with 'Black Watch'. It comes as no surprise to me (I mentioned it here), it was quite amazing in the flesh, and I know a certain someone who did vote for it!
