Clare Thatcher would like to thank you so much for all who voted for her painting ‘Grey Rock’. Unfortunately her painting did not make the shortlist this time. Reaching the long list was very rewarding especially given the high calibre of the competition. It generated an incredible amount of activity on social media which was fun and great for her profile.
