The New Monthly Painting Competition is Now Open

 

Month 3 - entries close at 12.00 Noon on Sunday 6th December

 

Due to the terrific response to the competition and with this second lockdown we have added an extra month to give you a focus over this difficult time.

 

Painting is a great therapy and with the competition you have a goal.

 

Let’s see if we can have a bumper number of entries over the next two months.

 

Good luck
