I'm really happy to have 2 pictures accepted for the RBSA Open All Media exhibition.
G and me went along to see the exhibition on Sunday. It's a good exhibition as usual full of varied styles and subject matter. There were quite a few collages, many using photographic material, and a nice selection of abstract work. There was a huge pastel study of a lady in a bath by Graham Kershaw, larger than life size I would guess. A very audacious piece beautifully rendered. There were quite a few pastel pieces at this year's open and one of my favourites were a couple of landscapes by Janette Summerfield which I really liked. Artists who's work I'm familiar with from previous shows and who's work I also really enjoyed were June Dudleston's painterly landscapes and Paul Hipkiss's vivid linocuts. I also enjoyed Rob Perry's intense painterly landscapes.
On handing in day the queue was longer than I'd ever known it before, so I'd guess that the RBSA had quite a few entries this year. The lady I was queuing behind showed me the piece she was handing in, a pretty cream coloured ceramic vase inspired by sea froth. Her piece made it into the exhibition too, Sea-Foam Vase by Katie Robbins.
This Dwarf Iris is one of my ACEOs which I am currently selling on Ebay.
