My painting, 'A Right Royal Street Party' has not been selected for the Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours exhibition at the Mall Galleries in London in April after all.
After taking the painting down to the hand-in last weekend and being so excited at the possibility of exhibiting in London, I'm hugely disappointed. Still, as Ben Affleck pointed out as he collected his Best Picture Oscar this week; it doesn't matter how you get knocked down in life, that's going to happen. All that matters is that you get up.
I shall find another exhibition, one which has a better match to my own style, and enter that. In the meantime I have a commissioned artwork to finish. Up and at 'em :)
