    Unusual to see the words UK and artist in the same sentence without the word piss in there.

    Looks like it could be fun wish there was an AB category though. Probs not considered real art *sigh*

    Whenever I see an advert for Artists to show their work a a local gallery , I usually give it a miss because Airbrush art would probably be frowned apon within the artists world, but then a flyer came through my door inviting amateur artists to display their work at a gallery in my local town, so I thought bugger it I will have a go and submitted 4 of my paintings.

    To my surprise the organisers accepted my entries and invited me to an 'open evening' , so off I went on the allocated evening and as expected all the other paintings were oils, acrylic , water colour mostly on canvas , so mine stood out like a sore thumb :thumbsdown:. The other artists seemed to look down their nose at me and didn't seem to take me seriously, I only managed to get a conversation out of one of them.

    Anyway as I was about to leave the organiser announced the Mayor would be presenting an award for the 'New Artist of the year' based on the paintings on display,,,, bugger me if he didn't call my name out and presented me with a cheque for £150 !!!!

    The rest of 'traditional' artists seemed VERY put out :)

    People hate what they don't understand why it's human nature.

    Well done with the cheque, must feel nice to know your work is appreciated and at a standard that it was considered good enough to beat the sole called " proper artist".
    You could of sat there with a canvas and probably mulled your way through a painting, then gave them the airbrush to try, I'm sure they would of appreciated the talent you have to be able to produce art with one.
