Jonathan (he's 10) had a piece of artwork sent to an exhibition organised by a local retirement community. Those canny people realise they can exhibit kids' work, charge us admission, then sell us the work too. Luckily, they do such a good job that it's a great event to go to. Here's Jonathan's echidna (done in watercolour pencils - what a chip off the old block!).
Last year, Catriona did the same thing, and we all went to the show then too. She won a "Highly Commended" for her painting. Here's her vase of flowers.
We were delighted that her friend won the biggest prize overall, for a truly great pastel drawing (which her parents stopped me from buying!).
