To tell the truth I was more than a little worried – would I be able to survive doing my first teaching workshop in over 30 years?? Would anyone even be interested enough to come to the wilds of the Victorian alps, brave the birdlife, Nicky’s cooking and the dodgy internet connectivity that only the country can provide?
Although I had been painting since I was 12 and had won some awards, when you enter the world's biggest bird art competition you never quite know what the judges are looking for and whether you had entered the right piece. That’s the issue with art of any form – it’s a subjective judgement. Ask Rembrandt – he only started selling his work just before he died! Personally, I have always preferred the path of “being discovered while living”.
