The Virtual Paintout - May 2012 Challenge

I had no intentions of participating in any challenges this year as I am working on bigger and 'slower' works which are more personal to me but I still check into the Virtual Paintout blog, and when I saw this month's city was Jerusalem, I felt a bit left out. I've been to Israel and walked down the Via Dolorosa and believe me it is very, very strange. The Google Street Maps seem to have visited on a sunny, busy day in this chaotic and mysterious part of the Old City of Jerusalem, so different from the day I visited when it was darker, in fact spooky, and far fewer shops were open.

#TwitterArtExhibit - Images from the show

In a recent post, I wrote about the second Twitter Art Exhibition that was put on by top Norwegian artist, David Sandum to raise funds for a women's crisis centre. I just thought I would share some photographs from the exhibition held in the library at Moss, Norway. It is currently still running and apparently paintings are still being sold. This was a superb effort put on by David Sandum and I was delighted to have taken part. Apparently my painting has sold which is good news. Above the photograph of the display stand there is a link to the whole photo album on David's 'Posterous' page which beautifully shows what a well-attended and exciting event it was. So strange to think of my little work hanging up in a library in Norway without my seeing it on show!  My painting is in the middle of the right hand side display in the photograph below.
