Lion artwork "Regal Partners" is an award winner for "Artist of the Month"

 It is always a compliment and a boost for any artist to have their artwork win an award in any art competition.

I have won a few awards for my detailed pastel artworks over the past few years in online art competitions, both free and paid for - I do tend to only enter these sorts of competitions if they are cheap or free. I like to use any awards as a promotional tool, as you may imagine but don't like to pay through the nose....I am selective.

You can all my awards at the end of this blog......

However the most satisfying award is the one I received last week from the US based The Art List who run monthly "Artist of the Month" competitions for FREE and I was award second place for November with my pastel painting " Regal Partners" below......

In addition to the award, this painting was included in the Art List's monthly newsletter and promoted on their social media which was good PR for Ivan Jones Pastel Artist!!

Also this painting is available to purchase at the Makers Gallery in Crickhowell, Wales where I have an exhibition of my artworks, cards and giclee prints until January 8th 2021....Emma Bevan of the gallery posted this award to the Makers instagram story so a further little boost...
