I just joined the Art Guild of Scarborough this summer and attended the first jurying evening with Artist, John Leonard. I was allowed to bring in 4 paintings that, if accepted, would be given the honour of an "Arthur" Stamp on the back. Three of my landscapes were given the Arthur Stamp and one of them, Early Start, shown above, was one of twenty paintings that were deemed to be of Special Merit. 


Needless to say, it was very exciting for me as this painting is very special to me and this was an honour to have it labelled "Special Merit" on the back.
