A post I intended to create late last year, but with all good intentions, it didn't quite happen. But a highlight from last year really, couldn't be ignored, so but here it is, even if it is a little late!
In November, 2022, I was honoured to have my oil painting "The Essence of Being" selected among the non-members to exhibit alongside members in the annual Royal Institute of Oil Painters (ROI), at the Mall Galleries in central London. As an exhibitor, I was invited to attend the opening private function that was presided over by ROI President, Tim Benson with Sir Christopher Le Bun (past President of the Royal Academy of Arts) as guest speaker officially opening the exhibition.
It was wonderful to see the extensive range of nearly 300 artworks hung and so with many of the artists in attendance that evening.
