All that glitters must surely be from Essex

Oh well.........

No luck with my submissions to the Royal Institute of Oil Painters, we went to collect yesterday.  When I picked up my worked I swiped a cheeky look at what others were picking up and there was some fantastic stuff that hadn't got in.

A friend told me that they aren't just looking at individual pieces but how everything fits together as a whole, so if your work doesn't fit, then that's just that!  I don't feel down, I did initially, but have submitted for yet another exhibtion (irons in the fire and all that).  I have applied for a studio space in Colchester, which I should hopefully be hearing back about in the next couple of weeks. 

Quite a lot to keep my fingers crossed for, I've got to get somewhere if I keep buggering on.
