A is for Andrei Rublev

And for awards and for awesome, amazing, achievement, arduous, appreciation.........   yeah, OK, enough, clearly I know English.

This is a quilled picture I did of an Andrei Rublev icon. I entered it in the most prestigious show in Australia (Royal Sydney Easter Show) and won not only first prize, but a medal for raising the standard of excellence and it was displayed in an actual showcase of excellence while the Duke & Duchess of Cambridge visited the show.

Nothing like this has ever happened to me previously. It was an arduous 6 months. These awards are a huge achievement for me, and those medals of appreciation are awesome and amazing..........   yeah, OK, enough, clearly I know how to use those words in a sentence.

So I'd like to share this on ABC Wednesday, where a new round begins with Alpha.
