Summer Exhibition

I was at the Summer Exhibition again yesterday with a friend who had never been before. I love introducing new people – it’s so much fun hearing what they have to say – and I think it’s great that people are now able to take photographs freely as a reminder of their visit. I remember when I was first in the Summer Exhibition that it was strictly forbidden and I had to get special permission from security to have a photograph taken of myself beside my work because my parents were unable to visit the show. I hasten to add that security were very understanding and obliging.

SUMMER SUCCESS

The edition of my linocut The Dancer, on show in the Summer Exhibition at the RA, sold out just a few days after the show opened – in fact most orders were taken during the Private Views. People ask me if I wish I had opted for a bigger print run so that I could sell more but I think a limited edition should be reasonably limited and I am happy to sell out and move on – but it’s a good image and I always planned to do another version of The Dancer one day – perhaps just in another colour or perhaps doing something different with the right hand panel…I’m still thinking about that one.
