This is one of my life size collagraphs, the title is a homage to my eldest son who has an army scholarship and spent 3 weeks of his summer holiday doing officer training at Sandhurst.
Why am I telling you all this?
This morning I heard that it has been chosen for the Society of Wildlife Artists Exhibition on the 22 September to 2 October 2010, at the Mall Gallery, London.
Please don't think I am blowing a trumpet here, it is just that I enter these open exhibitions every now and then and more often than not I fail to get in...a similar image failed to get into Originals 09 at the Mall Gallery, also the RA Summer Show, is it luck...I think so, but if at first you don't succeed and all that. So get out your copy of AN or hit Google with Open Exhibitions and see what is out there to enter. Judges can't see our work when it's under the bed.

Having seen this magnificent beast in the flesh - so to speak - I am not surprised he was selected. This is fabulous news and is well deserved. Lesley xx

So glad and well deserved, I have just enjoyed looking through the websites, so exciting. I have just brought back stones from Newfoundland, had to call a limit or it might have been a danger to the plane! Really looking forward to the course in Oct. Chris Dack

Are you curious about me? said...

Good point... I'm going to order it now..

I am bowled over by this print, a life size collagraph, it's amazing, I wish that I could see it.

I am just, and I mean just, learning how to do collagraph prints, if fact tomorrow I go to learn a little more...

I am totally inspired that such amazing work can be produced by this technique.

Thank you for showing this wonderful print and congratulations on being chosen for the exhibition.
