My painting of Autumn Leaves won a highly commended, the Barbie Coates Trophy (for visitors choice), and was sold at the Irby Artists Autumn Exhibition yesterday. It was an excellent exhibition, and there were many visitors to it all day. I always enjoy the Irby exhibitions, the standard it really high, and the paintings are so varied and interesting. The committee work very hard to make it a sucessful day. I did my bit helping with the washing up after all the tea and scones.
