These are my paintings I've decided to enter for this years Essex Open Exhibition at the Beacroft Gallery. I dropped them off on Thursday. They said they were expecting about 700 entries again this year.
Last year I entered two paintings then at the last minute I added "Sunday Morning" which I had just finished and I'd been hoping to put into last years Leigh Art Trail. Well unfortunately my main venue for the trail last year fell through so as I was keen to try and exhibit it I put it in as a last minute entry at the Beacroft. A few days later I got a letter back. The origional two paintings had been rejected but Sunday morning had won me a £400 prize for best work in Exhibition! So every cloud has a silver lining as they say.
