I Won Kim’s Christmas Competition

Posted by cotojo on January 7, 2008

Kim Barker, the award winning portrait artist, of Laketrees ran a Christmas Competition with a prize of a Portrait for the winner.  The competition ran from the end of October through to 21st December, when the winner was announced.

Well….I was the winner and on my Birthday too! What a wonderful present!

I was so surprised and want to thank all that voted for me by leaving comments.

I have chosen to have a portrait of my daughter, who is much better looking than me lol, and it will also be a nice surprise for her to be immortalised in this way.

This Thursday it is my daughters 15th Birthday, so  I shall be travelling to see her and to take her out for a meal, as I always do.  She picks the venue, I pay the bill lol.  I will also take some photo’s to forward to Kim for the portrait.

So Thank You Kim, and Thank You to all who passed comment 🙂

    Sorry I’m late, but Congrats and you’ve made a good choice. I know Kim have trouble with her shoulder, but hope she keeps us all posted when her portrait drawing is done.

    Judy – Thank you so very much 🙂
    You are so right that it is the ‘little imperfections in us are the perfections that make us the special people we truly are’, and with children it’s being able to capture those moments and treasure them 🙂
    Have a wonderful day my friend,
    Hugs to you,

    Congratulations Colin! I thought of entering that contest. I would have loved to get my Grand Daughter Bella’s picture done when her little eyes still crossed. I know that sounds weird but the little imperfections in us are the perfections that make us the special people we truly are…
    Good for you Colin!
    Hugs, Judy
