Annual Show Submissions

Todays' the day for submitting work in Edinburgh for the three big annual shows - the Royal Scottish Society of Painters in Watercolour (RSW), The Society of Scottish Artists (SSA) and Visual Arts Scotland (VAS) at the Royal Scottish Academy (RSA).  It's quite a bit of alphabet soup to handle all at once, especially doing the paperwork for all three simultaneously!   

Hopefully I've got the right labels on the right pieces, and have taken care to think about the specific feel and individual nature of each of the 3 exhibitions, which all take place in February in the RSA at the same time.

 Beached Boat, Aldeburgh ( Acrylic,10 x 10)

Size restrictions mean that I can only submit small work to the SSA, but I've been able to indulge myself with 2 large oils for the VAS.   These oils are very textural, with collage incorporated into the paint surface.

 St Pauls with Cranes (Oil and mixed media on canvas, 36 x 36)

It's up to the judging panels now, so we'll see what (if anything!) gets in.
