Well, I got two of the three paintings that I submitted for the Royal Society of Marine Artists Annual Exhibition accepted, hoorah:
Sunlight on Mud, Brancaster Staithe
Moored in the shade, Brancaster Staithe
I'm hoping to become an Associate Member of the RSMA at some point - to be invited to join you have to have a number of works accepted for the Show every year for a number of years and then if the Committee, all fine painters, consider your work is of sufficient quality, they may ask if you would like to join the Society. I've had sixteen paintings accepted in the last six years, so fingers crossed.
Obviously, if I am offered Associate Membership of the RSMA and I can put ARSMA after my name, my paintings will quadruple in price overnight, so to beat the rush and be canny, I would STRONGLY advise all of you to snap up all my paintings currently available in the Galleries representing me.......
