On Saturday I was delighted to be awarded second prize in the inaugural ‘Maidenhead and Me’ art competition run by Maidenhead Civic Society. Artists were requested to produce work depicting what Maidenhead means to them. I love living in Maidenhead and one of the main reasons is that although I have all the amenities of city living on my doorstep including great transport links I can also walk from my house and be out in the country within a few minutes. I painted this view which shows the proximity of Maidenhead to the beautiful Berkshire countryside.
The prizes were presented by the Right Honourable Theresa May MP which was a special honour.
