Here's how it came to be.
My mother noticed Cat Soper's tweet about sending her entry in. Intrigued we investigated http://twitterartexhibit.org/ further and decided that the opportunity for a little international exposure was well worth the time and effort. Cat's a local artist we got to know through the Blue Gum Art Exhibitions at Ourimbah Public School. @catdezign
To enter you needed a Twitter presence, so @VJCavanagh came into being, and then you first register and then send in an original postcard-sized hand-produced artwork. All the entries get exhibited and the proceeds of each sale go to a charity, with all the artworks for sale at the same price.
We're hoping that my entry gets there by the 11 Mar 2016 deadline.
What to draw?
How about something with those two characters from Tee Off at Knackers Lake? Ok, I'll work on that.
Here's a photo of the drawing after I finally had something I was happy to ink.
Here's what it looked like after the first series of watercolour washes:
And the final result:
Now for the fun of seeing what happens next, and hoping the original finds an appreciative home.
