I can thank enough all the artists who submitted their fabulous work. It was so difficult to choose the winners. You should all be incredibly proud of your talent. You will soon be able to see your work in print.

I am now compiling all the entries that qualified into the book. The final book should be ready by the end of January. It will be available for purchase directly from the publisher, online, and you can purchase as many copies as you want. I will announce the details here on this blog as soon as I know them.

 

Thank you, thank you for your amazing talents, and for helping celebrate Nick Bantock, to remind him of how many lives he’s truly influenced and changed.

In the envelope is a note to Nick:

“Dearest Nick, When your work finally reached me, my heart sang for months. There is no way to thank you for the doors you’ve opened in my mind. The beauty of your work plus the intrigue of your stories took me to many places ~

You encouraged me to begin my own journey to find a lost part of my family. To know my long gone grandmother. I created  her persona through art by placing her in Capolan. What a joy it is to imagine her dancing around the campfire!

Thank you, Nick, for everything you have given to us all”

 

There was also a travelling wagon.
