The exhibition in Thailand 8-11th November 2012 was a fantastic experience which I will write more about over the next week, including opening ceremonies, and other artists I met during this trip...but I know that many of you are waiting to see better pics of my paintings.  I won the "Outstanding 2nd Class Award" for the Freestyle contest, which was my orchid vase (read more about planning my paintings for this contest).  This event was to celebrate Her Majesty Queen Sirikit’s 80th Birthday with the Thailand International Porcelain Painting Convention (TIPP 2012). I was presented with a bronze pin at the Royal Gala Presentation evening....we had to rehearse for the formal acceptance- for which I would have liked a little more time to practice my curtsy in strapped heels in a long gown, without falling over 😉 but it all went smoothly!  I really enjoyed the opportunity to present my work at a vernissage to  HR Highness Queen Sirikit's Representative (HR Highness the Queen was unable to attend), H.E. the Privy Councillor and other Ministers, along with the other winners.  The whole event was amazing, we were unable to take photos or videos as there are publicity productions which will be made available to us later.  So I only have photos of before and after.  Enjoy the photos!

 

A nice surprise Sunday morning....
