I have had a 50 percent success with the exhibition entries as one was taken and one was rejected. I am not too sad yet as there are several reasons why they might not take my work and most of them aren’t art related but practical reasons, too big, too many entries etc. I find out on Saturday when I find out which one even did not get in. I took the battlescene which is tired and dusty and the blue rain which is fresh and modern.
I just wish we got to write a blurb about the reason for painting the picture. The reason for painting blue rain was that very exhibition but several years ago. I saw a picture of rain on a window and it was beautiful and really well done but the washing up bottle and window ledge was not painted very well at all. This picture stuck with me all these years until I was finally good enough to paint the water droplets.
