Delighted to share awards received for floral artwork from a recent art competition

Ivan Jones artist awards 10th Botanicals art exhibition

It is not often I undertake pastel paintings of flowers, but a few years ago I created a series of artworks on the floral theme. These included a marigold, waterlily, orchid, rose and dahlia.

 When the Light Space Time art gallery undertook a Botanicals art competition I thought it was entering two of my better floral artworks, the waterlily and the moth orchid......

I was very pleased to discover early this month that I had been awarded a prize for each pastel artwork - an Award of Merit ( one of 60 artists ) for the moth orchid and an award of special recognition ( one of 100 artists ) for the waterlily. This is not too shabby given there were 844 entries in total!

These are my entries for your interest.......
