My art teacher’s daughter has run the marathon so she made sure everyone knew that I and another lady (who ran with the great name of “Granny GoGo” on her shirt) had run it. So what with a demo and chatting about the marathon, there wasn’t a huge amount of time to paint. Lots of people were doing landscapes, but I wanted to do a picture of my favourite magnolia tree which is just emerging into flower, from a photo I took of it on a run last week.
