Spalding artists had to be quick on the draw this month with three big events.

It all started at high speed as demonstrator Stan Hurr completed three portraits in under two hours of Bevereley Healey, Arthur Beevers and Cherylyn Marriner ... before generously donating the pictures to the sitters from Spalding Arts and Crafts Society.

The society's exhibition at the Geest Gallery, in Ayscoughfee Hall, Spalding, opened on May 3 and there's still time to see it - and vote for your favourite picture - because the run doesn't end until Wednesday, May 30.

More than 60 original paintings are on display and for sale.

Visitors are asked to vote so that the People's Choice Award can be given to the most popular artist.

The artists were also in demand at Springfields over the Spring Bank Holiday weekend.

Springfields Horticultural Society sponsored a competition where arts society members were asked to paint pictures of tulips to tie in with the history of tulips theme.

Winners were: 1 Veronica Pryke for Tulip Trail, 2 Gill Harker for Tulip Fields and 3 Liz Wellings with Tulips.

The public vote went to Maggie Goodsell.
