Guten tag and Happy News!

I am staying in Dortmund in Germany this week, I was asked to give a lady pastel lessons in exchange I get stay in a beautiful atelier. So we paint in the morning and I explore in the afternoon.

No painting yesterday, we spent the entire day in Dusseldorf, a wonderful city, full of beautiful architecture and sculpture, old and new, we returned tired but content at 10pm.

On my return to the atelier, I received the news that I have won the Thornhill Art Prize and £300. I am thrilled with the award and the money will help to pay for a trip to Gloucester to see our daughter in the Cotswolds.
