"The artist...is also a born adventurer. His explorations, unlike those of a tourist, are rewarded by the discovery of beauty spots unmentioned in the guide books, and with tireless curiosity and an exceptional proneness to wonderment, he will come upon objects of remarkable interest overlooked or even shunned by more disciplined observers."

Augustus John, R.A.

Had a very nice surprise today at the preview of the Doncaster Open when my print 'Evening on the Skirfare' took first prize. This is me with the Mayor of Doncaster.

Thanks Jennifer, Yes it was a proud moment, I never expected to take first prize with a linocut.

Hi Sherrie, thanks for the comment. It was a good day for printmakers as one of the highly commended prizes went to a woodcut printmaker.
