Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, 10th June - 18th August

My linocut print, 'Tour de Force', has been accepted for this year's Summer Exhibition at the Royal Academy.  It is the first time I have been accepted and yesterday I attended the Varnishing Day, which was a lovely occasion; selected artists and patrons only meant that everyone you encountered was incredibly pleased with themselves, and pleased for you, too! The church service was particularly enjoyable, the address examined a passage from 'A Midsummer's Nights' Dream' that considered the idea of art allowing us to glance at the comprehended and the apprehended, heaven and earth, innermost feelings and those on the outside...it was thought provoking and inspiring.  Anyway here are some snaps:
