My Entries for this years Essex Open Exhibiton at the Beacroft Gallery

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.

  1. I love those cows.If they don't accept that for the exhibition they must be crazy.

  2. Thanks Jo, No luck I'm afraid with the cows but I did manage to get the little one of the cottage in.
