Crikey. I'd like to have a go at that next year (is it an annual event?), but I suspect that smallish pencil drawings aren't quite what they're after.
The entry fee is quite reasonable.

Hi Tony
I'm sure the SWLA consider ANY type of entry. There's a varied selection of work on show.

I'm happy to say that after a brief delay in customs three of my prints made it to Mall Galleries and were accepted for show! Too many other adventures recently for me to note this here. Unfortunately I'm in a 3-person show here at same time so between that and costs it's most likely I won't be able to see the show in person. Unless some money starts falling off trees that is.

That's great news! (The part about being accepted, that is, not the part about not being able to make it over) Congratulations.

Thanks Nick, Paschalis! It's a real honor to be showing there. I wish I were more in the habit of world travel and having the money to pay for it. It really would be great to see the show.

And of course Nick it would be great to start seeing some of your work honoring these pages again!!

I'll do my best, to be honest, the past few months have seen me more of a birder than a bird artist, and strangely, when I go through these sort of periods, I don't even look at bird art (I really don't know why) - am trying to remedy this as soon as possible though, been painting all day so far, will carry on after my nap and am trying to catch up on these threads as best I can.
