You must keep in mind that I only started painting in August 2010 after at least twenty years of turning my back on acrylics and canvas.
I didn't hear anything so I thought the work hadn't made the cut, until I received an email in January...
'Hi there,My inital reaction to this was AARRGGHH! Withing ten minutes of receiving the message I was planning the three paintings I would create that weekend. A trip to The Range and many long arduous nights sketching and painting whilst watching the Sopranos back to back paid off. Ironically it was these three paintings that the gallery were interested in and selected for the exhibition.
Just to let you know you have been selected to show in Off the Wall for IWD. Please contact ...... a.s.a.p
She would like some more images, the show starts on 24th February'
The opening night was held on Thursday 24th February. It was a fantastic experience and worthwhile to make new contacts in the Welsh Art world. Brilliant for the ethnography work I need to do.
The WAA were interested in my PhD research so this could be useful at a later date.
