Painted as a gift for the family of the young man this commemorates. Painted three times as it changed colour every time I photographed it. It has weathered beautifully.

Title or Location: Twilight in Penarth
I used to live in Penarth, and find it an interesting town by the sea, with lovely shopping, eclectic coffee shops, parks, and of course the wonderful pier. I am also fascinated by the wonderful lamps in Britain and beyond, their history and intricate designs. Hence this lovely lamp, taken from its neighbours, to stand proud and alone, but with the outline of the pier behind to illustrate its context of Penarth.

Title or Location: Penarth Pier Sunset
Chasing the sunset. I'm an artist and mother with a great love of running. Since becoming a mother in 2021, my free time has dwindled into near non-existence. So, when I do get out for a run, I always want to make the most of it. With little time to train, my exercise had been condensed into early mornings and evenings around my boy's sleep times. Despite the less favourable timing this has brought with it the glorious benefit of gorgeous winter sunrises and sunsets across the water.Alon

I usually work with soft pastels and, recently started trying out watercolour. I discovered that although it's an unpredictable medium, I love the soft hues of watercolour washes. I became fascinated with learning the techniques involved with gold leaf embellishment and added just a smidgeon

Bandra Arts Born in Mumbai, I spent my first year of life in an orphanage before being adopted and raised in the UK. Now based in Cardiff, I draw inspiration from my Indian roots and the natural world that surrounds me. My art is a fusion of ancient Indian art techniques and contemporary styles, resulting in vibrant pieces filled with rich colours and intricate details.

Ailsa Craig is an island in the Irish Sea off the Scottish coast. Its a magical place and the colours of the sea and sky can be exquisitely beautiful. One of my favourite places to paint. This is one of a series of paintings I have done of the island.

Title or Location: Northern Lights
This was painted for my granddaughters, who went to Finland last December. The photo I used is one taken by my daughter in law. I loved the way the lights created a green swirl in the sky, framed by the ink black trees and white snow.
