Well today was thepicturepalace live! event and I was there and so were quite a few others. I'll post a fuller blog entry when the Plymouth Herald have run the story and I can link to their coverage which will hopefully feature me presenting my portrait of the Lord Mayor to Plymouth City Council. Yes folks, that's how you get your work accepted into a public collection, you give it to them. I just wonder if it will end up somewhere in the City Museum and Art Gallery next to a Joshua Reynolds? Anyway a sleepless night was worth it as it seemed to go down very well and there is talk of re-presenting it to the Lord Mayor herself in the council chamber (in which case I hope she likes it). The work in question is pictured below in between a view of my display and one of me behind said display resplendent in thepicturepalace exclusive Will Hay T shirt. I know, a T shirt over another shirt, it's a tough look to carry off but I think I got away with it.
Work in progress and other stuff that happens.
