Two years ago, myself and some artist-friends submitted paintings to the Willow Foundation‘s Stars on Canvas auction. Willow is a charity providing special days out to 16-40 year olds who are seriously ill. The auction was a mixture of artist’s canvases and signed, embellished canvases by famous people – footballers, tv stars, etc. The next auction is in December this year, in London, and tonight I started my canvas. We are all given the same size canvas, about 5 x 5 inches or so. Last time I painted a portrait, this time I’ve gone for flowers. Here is the work in progress so far, though there’s a fair bit more to go.
