International Emerging Artist Award

'Cruel Angel' Acrylics on Canvas

Earlier this year I was so disappointed when my paintings were not even shortlisted for the International Emerging Artist Award.

It was pretty easy to enter because I just had to upload my work onto their online platform. I then waited for a few months for that dreaded email that thwarted all my hopes for international fame.

Maybe I did not describe my work well enough or the work just was not winner material. Anyway, I recovered and I am now even elated to see it was not a wasted effort.

One of my paintings 'Cruel Angel' is on display on their online gallery under the title 'best pick painting'.

On second thought, I have mixed feelings about it being the only painting from Africa. Is that something to celebrate or be sad about?
