Oxford Art Society

Yay! My drawing was accepted by the Oxford Art Society for their annual Open Exhibition. It was on the blog a few months ago: you can see it here. I know this isn't really a big deal in the great scheme of things, but I'm very excited. I've never had a picture exhibited anywhere before; in fact, I've never submitted anything before. I went to the private view yesterday, and I have to say, I don't think my modest little drawing looked totally out of place among all the works by professional artists. No one seemed to be laughing at it, at least! So, if you happen to be in Oxford before 3 November, stop in and see it.

CONGRATS Dave! I remember that one and it is beautiful and it is nice to know the OAS thinks so too. Great honor!

Congratulations Dave!!! I can't say as I'm surprised since it is a GREAT drawing. And for what it's worth, I think it's a very big thing. It can be scary putting our art work "out there". So pat yourself on the back for having the courage. It was obviously worth the risk. :)

(PS The pen and ink I was working on at the same time is still sitting in my unfinished pile. You've put me to shame.)
