It all goes quiet

a bit like the end of a great night out
the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition finishing is like the quiet journey home with the sound of music still ringing in your ears.

its been a heck of a few weeks watching the virtual dots be added to the picture and I got to go there for the last day to take a picture of my print with its sold out sticker
its a bit sad I know but this may never happen again (although I hope that it does) so I am allowing myself a bit of indulgence!

now there is a bit of calm and some time to work out what the hell I will put in for next year… no idea at the moment

RA you cant go home again


RA edition sold out

With a few weeks left
my edition of 25 you cant go home again print has sold out

when I submitted my image to the Royal Academy competition back in April, I had approached it like other years, a case of sending these images and seeing how they go.
I always have it in the back of my mind that these could be selected and sold and bought but it still surprises me – firstly that it got this far and was part of the exhibition and also that so many people have chosen it to put up on their wall

Its been great speaking to the buyers and finding out what drew them to the image – it reminds me that buying art is so personal, everyones reasons for liking it are different
It also makes me feel more focussed, that can just carry on doing what I am doing and letting others find their own meanings behind them
