Traditional wins the awards!

Disappointment for anyone venturing outside the norm.
The May Open Competition attracted the usual 30 plus entries in each category, but anyone who was a little bit experimental in their approach did not get very far. Landscapes prevailed overall, and whilst Jill and Tony deserved the awards in both categories , as did all those placed, it was a shame that many of the comments made by the judge on those that did not make the cut, did little to encourage those who tried something a bit different, outside their personal comfort zones.

It was really good to have Margot join us on Zoom for the first time and although she is still wrestling with the technology , she enjoyed the contact even though she had no sound, and is going to try again next week It was really good to see her again.
