Over the summer I have continued to enter competitions in the strive to put my artwork out into the public domain. Rejection is a difficult concept to swallow however nothing ventured, nothing gained.
I entered The Jerwood Drawing Prize 2013, drawing with a needle, but was rejected. An exciting coincidence was I had a ticket for Court 1 at Wimbledon on the day to drop artwork at Wimbledon College of Art for judging. When I returned to pick up my failed entry it was the day after Andy Murray became champion.
I have now entered The National Open Art Compertiton 2013. I put in Mixed Identity 3 which I had framed to entre The Summer Exhibition 2013. I have my fingers crossed to get into the next round.
