Hi guys

I was wondering if its not too much hassle, that I could please ask for you to vote for my mums paintings.
She is 69 years old and suffers from a lot of illnesses mainly arthritis in her hands. It would mean the world to her if she won the art competition in the peoples choice awards.
if u have time could you vote for them on eacartawards.org.uk
You have to register with a valid email address then confirm your email address by clicking the link they send you..then look for 'Janette Morier' in the artists filter (its in alphabetical order by surname so scroll down to M) and her 2 paintings above will come up 'Lazy days' and 'Strawberry tower' shes doing really well but has slipped back into 3rd place. If you could take a few minutes and vote I`d really appreciate it. thank you :) x

VOTED! I do watercolour paintings too and they can be very difficult! Basically you work backwards, starting really light and building up. And when mistakes happen nothing can be salvaged!
These paintings are fabulous. :)

Hi

Thank you so much :) The voting closes 31st January and currently in 3rd place. My mum is housebound and paints every day with watercolour paints, she loves it and would love to try and win some competitions or try sell them but she thinks shes too old for all that now. She used to use oil paints previously.

Thanks for your reply and vote x :)

Your mum is a very talented lady!

My Aunt does watercolours, it's fascinating to watch her whilst she paints, I would never have the patience myself.

I just voted for her too.

I found the Strawberry Tower on page 17 and once you've registered and clicked the link on the email then you'll see that Lazy Day (the picture of the tiger) is at the top of the page in third place.

Thank you hummingbird for the kid words and for voting I really appreciate it.

I would never have the patience either. My Mum and uncle paint and have a very artistic family in many other ways. :)

Please keep voting people until 31st January.

Thank you
