Agape in Australia

Mid-July, the news came that Agape Touch had been juried into the final 30 of the prestigious Inglis Equine Art Prize and was invited to go on tour in Australia until January next year!
It was amazing and an honour to be in such good company: the line-up of finalists was top notch.
Indeed, works of fellow artists friends Linda Shantz and Catherine Mcmillan were also present.

As I worked on organising the logistics of sending my drawing off on my dream trip, little was to prepare me for the news to come...

Mid-August, news came that Agape Touch was runner-up to Kristin Hardiman's beautiful oil painting "Mother and Foal". My hearty congratulations go out to Kristin for her win. 
A few weeks later, after the show was shown in Sydney, Melbourne & Scone,  news came that Agape Touch had also been awarded the People´s Choice Award.

Mid-September, the postman delivered a Magnum of Bolinger Champagne, an overnight stay in the Crown Metropole  Hotel, a luxury set of Antler luggage and a wonderful letter from Arthur Inglis.

Mid-October ... I'm convinced  I'll still be backflipping over the moon with the widest smile on my face!
