  • Our very own Somerset Artist is a star!!

    Just wanted to let you all know that our very own Somerset Artist is a true Star!!
    If you remember he posted here about his personal challenge to paint the smallest Mona Lisa. I was absolutely amazed at the work and we went to visit him and his lovely family ( and two barking mad dogs!!!!! ) last Sunday. The piece looks fantastic, quite how he does it is beyond me it is stunning!
    Anyway to cut a long story short, this week we have gone and got Andrew featured in the press. If you get a copy of The Star today his work is on page 20 with the headline 'Mini Lisa' There is also a tiny piece in The Sun. Hopefully more to come.
    Congratulations Andrew, I knew your work was brilliant, I really hope that something big ( no pun intended) works out for you from this as you have a very special talent and you deserve the recognition for it.
    Thank you for letting us come and meet you and your lovely family and for giving us such a warm welcome. Throw the ball one more time from me!!!!!!!

    lol!

    How cool is that! I will have a look at the paper later. I just about manage to hold my concentration with 'normal' sized canvases. Fair play, he has some patience!

    sounds like you had fun!

    Sometimes what we say is not what we mean & what we mean is not what we say - that's why I paint!

                  A big thank you to Penny and Tony for trouble they took, both travelling up from their home and all the work that went along with submitting the story.

                  It didn't get the coverage thet we would have hoped for, but who knows. Anyway here is an image with the painting against a first class stamp, which shows the scale pretty well.

                  Thanks to all the encouragement that everyone gave, but this may not be the end of the story - watch this space!!
