Stars On Canvas 2012

I was asked to contribute to the Stars on Canvas Exhibition again this year. It's a charity exhibition run by the Willow Foundation, set up by Bob and Meg Wilson to provide special days for seriously ill young people.

Artwork featured includes canvases specially painted by such well-known children's book illustrators as Korky Paul, Peter Firmin, Mini Grey, Leigh Hodgkinson, and Thierry Henry.

This is my little effort. I dusted off my old acrylic paints to do this. Most of the stuff I do these days is digital, and I kept wanting to press the step-backwards button. A lot. It was fun to paint all the same.

The exhibition has its private view and press launch on the 29th November at the Maddox Arts, 52 Brooks Mews, London W1K 4ED (nearest tube: Bond Street). The exhibition runs to the 1st December. There's also an on-line eBay auction which runs from 22nd November to the 2nd December, so you can pick up a classy canvas with a click of a mouse.
