A mere 21 days after the end of the exhibition, I have scrambled on top of my backlog enough to actually post something about it… this bodes ill for my organisation regarding the upcoming Herts Open Studios, but more on that in later posts.
In summary, the St Albans Art Society summer exhibition went very well in general, with some rather spiffy pictures of it available here and here on the society website. It also went well for me personally, as I came out of it with my pastel of Cedar the Eagle owl sold and three commissions for more. Moreover the same owl got voted in as second-most-popular framed picture in an exhibition with over 200 entries; most flattering ^^. Owls for everyone!
Alas, my still life did not meet with the same success and has returned to its dust-gathering location against a wall.
My final entry to the exhibition is the oil painting ‘Thundercats’ featured at the top of this post. It took half of forever to paint and earned barely a glance, but hey, I like it. I would love to upload a good image of this into the website gallery proper, but my camera is simply not up to the task and the above offering (smushed together in the middle to edit out all the varnish reflections) was the best I could get.
