Gitane, you need to send pics of your paintings rather to

MelanieG@sanparks.org ( She is the Content Editor).

Just attach pics of your paintings to your email to her.
Don't forget to PM any Mod your Kudu nominations for the month.

If you want to list your Park Dates in the YR Thread then please PM me.

Thanks for all the positive comments!! Really appreciate it! I agree - this means much more than selling a painting! :D

Gitane, I think you must have me confused with somebody else - have not exhibited yet, except for a mini exhibition about 2 years ago in St. Lucia and my framer who from time to time sells some of my paintings in his gallery.

Did'nt want to post this pic because the photo I took of the painting is a bit blurred but here goes. I did the painting last year after a trip to Lower Sabie.
