The Art of Reflection Competition
I’m really delighted that my pastel painting ‘Waterlilies in the Majorelle Garden’ has made it to the (quite long) short-list for Jackson’s ‘Art of Reflection’ Competition.
Please vote for my picture if you like it and encourage your friends as well! Voting closes 04 August.
Quoted from Unison Colour’s Facebook page on 24 February 2016:
“Our Unison Colour ‘Your art’ featured artist is Susan Brooke. Susan recently became a joint award winner (non-member) of The Pastel Society Annual Exhibition with her painting titled Urban Angel and this is the piece we have featured on our website. I asked Susan why she chose our pastels to work with & she said ‘I was introduced to pastels at a one-day workshop about 4 years ago and our teacher admitted that Unison pastels were her personal favourites. So I thought, well if they’re good enough for her – why mess about? It probably sounds a bit trite, but it was pretty much love at first sight!’. The picture in this post is named Check Mates.”
Delighted to have heard that my picture ‘Urban Angel II’ is the joint winner of the Pastel Society’s non-members award” (See page 8 of the online catalogue)
The Pastel Society is exhibiting at The Mall Galleries from 23 February to 5 March. Opening times and more information is available on The Mall Galleries website.
Susan won the Alpha Art Award at Patchings Art Competition this year. An article featuring the competition winners was published in the September 2015 edition of ‘Leisure Painter’ – see below.
Susan’s pastel of family friend, Lucy, was selected for the Patchings Art Exhibition earlier this year.
