Those of you who subscribe to my quarterly newsletter will know that in December I ran a competition for my collectors for the most original photo of themselves with a piece of my work they own.
I am happy today to announce the result of the competition: The winner is Steve pictured here with his purchase Beneath my feet. As you can imagine I had no trouble selecting the winner and I am glad that the competition provoked an act of such creativity!
For the prize I promised another piece of my art, but didn't specify which as I hoped to choose a piece based on interest previously shown by the winner in a specific piece. In this case I remember that Steve showed an interest in picture X when he took part in the ‘popular jury’ decision to decide the pictures to include in my 365 exhibition in 2011.
In fact, Steve very kindly said,
I'd love to see this image on a huge billboard which I passed daily.
Thanks to everyone who participated in the competition and thanks especially to Steve for the generous and ready support he always shows towards my art-making.
Great work, Steve. I will be putting your picture in the post very soon.
