On the weekend I entered this painting into an art competition at our local "Seabreeze Festival". It was people's choice, meaning the winner was based on the highest number of votes. I was up against people older than me, and even professional artists.

Serenity by In-The-Distance

AND I WON!!!!!
I won $1000, in fact! I was so excited!! I am glad so many people liked my artwork ^^

Just thought I'd share that :)

I am a self-taught traditional artist that uses watercolours and coloured pencils. I paint mainly animals and fantasy, with horses being my specialty and joy, but sometimes branch out to underwater landscapes and human portraits.

Thank you!!! A graphic designer friend actually made the avatar for me!! It's like my own personal 'logo'; I got her to make me some business cards (representing me as an artist) for in real life too, and this logo is on it :D
