The Lucky Winner

6 Jun



I rarely win anything, probably because I don’t enter competitions or do the lottery and things like that. But sometimes you see little competitions on Facebook and Twitter asking you to like and repost / retweet something and then you’ll be entered for a prize draw. I often click these and I’ve won twice. The first time I won a lovely printed tote bag designed by illustrator Gayle Rogers from the Workers Gallery. And recently I clicked on a link to the Sunday Times Watercolour competition organised by Parker Harris and my prize came through the post today, a pad of very expensive Saunders cotton paper from St. Cuthbert’s Mill. Lovely.

I’m currently working on a series of expressive drawings of ancestral sites and if you want to see some of my other artworks, please click here.

    Well done – what a nice surprise! I tend not to trust those kind of competitions, maybe I need to change my mind …

      They’ve both been on Facebook and both on my friends list so I knew they were okay. I’m going to click on far more in future 😀

    Fab prize! (I have a creamy pad of this lovely paper for ‘best’). Look forward to seeing what you do in it… 🙂

    Who knew? Often thought those “offers” were scams.

      I only respond to the ones I am friends with, not the pop up ones,, both the prizes have been lovely, definitely worth doing 😀

    Cool. Best person to win that! It’d be wasted on the rest of us.
