St Ives Society of Artists, I had been encouraged to try by several artists that I know, I wanted to join because I think that I would be a good and very energetic member of any society, also I think it is good to get together with people who are doing the same thing as you are...anyway they didn't want me. Bum! Getting over the feelings of rejection are getting easier (well a bit) and upon reflection I think my work perhaps isn't quite the thing for them, so on to the next thing.
Above are the framed and ready to go watercolours for my submission to the The Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colour and that is a society that I really, really want to join! So fingers crossed for this one, please wish me luck. Plus the framing has cost an arm and a leg and I don't exactly have a lot of money to throw around right now, I really hope at least one gets in! I do think they look good though, the framing is lovely, worth every penny, we just wont eat for a while!
