It's never too early to think about Christmas even in these difficult times.
A percentage of sales is going to the Macular Society, a very worthy cause.
Age-related macular degeneration is the biggest cause of sight loss in the UK.
I do hope you may find some ideas for Christmas presents on my page Christmas2020.

Due to Covid-19 exhibitions have either been cancelled or moved online. Here I list those I've submitted to so far. For past exhibitions, please see Exhibitions.
These exhibitions are usually held twice a year and have a superb selection of art on display within the organiser's own home. The exhibition includes some well known artists as well as others and works are on sale at very reasonable prices.

“These are the artists and their artwork which we felt could easily have been placed higher but due to the size constraints in each media category, this art was placed in this special category. Any of the Special Merit art, in many cases, is interchangeable with the best art that we selected for the top tier.”
(NB The higher category consisted of 10 paintings. 2nd time it has been awarded Special Merit in LS&T worldwide competitions.)
