The Point!

by Tracie Koziura

The-PointWell, Wimbledon has come and gone for yet another year but, despite the Grand Slam once again eluding him, Andy Murray's performances inspired me to pick up my pastels and get creative again!

As well as being the British No. 1 Tennis player, Andy Murray is also a supporter of many charities and causes. Last month, at Wimbledon, he was presented with canvas prints of original artwork by John Trevillion, which had been commissioned by the Daily Mail, capturing the various moods and actions of the Tennis Ace. Andy had been impressed with the original drawings - so much so, he had posted them on his Facebook page! However, instead of keeping the unique prints, he signed each one and then donated them to "Tickets for Troops" - a cause set up just last year to provide top tickets for sporting, musical and entertainment events to troops and their families during these difficult times.
