I’ m so delighted to be through the first hurdle
My piece ‘ territories’ has been selected by the Royal Ulster Academy
The next thing is to get it to Belfast, then apparently 1 in 4 that get this far are then chosen for exhibition
Fingers and toes firmly crossed!
This is a mixed media piece( oil and cold wax) on cradled wooden panel 50cm square

I dont usually post flower photos because I have a shaky hand, so I usually leave it to those who do it well
But the heather and montbretia / crocosmia are so vibrant just now
Magenta is a difficult colour in painting because it is so powerful, and the powder pigment that I bought in Venice seems to have got everywhere!
Our magenta rugosa roses are nearly over but they are our biggest success story, thriving inspite of our strong salt winds
We are delighted to have berries on one of our rowan trees for the first time, we planted about 20 rowans 6 years ago, and most have survived, and a few have flowered for the last 3 years, but the blossoms always get blown off before the berries set.
