I promised I would let you see how I got on with my vegetable challenge so here it is.
It is the first time I have ever painted vegetables but I enjoyed it. It is also really interesting to see how everyone else interpreted the same photograph.
You can see my picture along side the others at
Now that I have painted this it doesn’t really fit with the other pictures on my website so I thought we could have a silent auction for a charity where my friend Sherien works . The charity works with troubled teenagers – something which I have experience of. You can see what they do at
If you would like to bid for the painting it is mounted so that the finished measurement is 500mm x 400mm. It is your chance to own a unique piece of art and help a great charity at the same time. Simply place your bid in a comment (which I will not publish), making sure you leave me an e-mail address, and the highest bid at the end of June gets the painting, the charity gets all of the money you bid.
