Royal Academy of Arts Summer Exhibition


 I have been accepted into the RA Summer Exhibition, this, I believe is the 247th year its been running. The earliest artists to exhibit at the RA include Reynolds, Constable and Turner.
There were 12000 entries and about 1200 have been picked. https://www.royalacademy.org.uk/exhibition/summer-exhibition-2015
 It has been a dream of mine to have my work in this place so full of history. I received the email today, the first thing I did was tell my husband and then I ran  screaming through the whole house and garden!!!
There have been some disappointments over the years, but it has been so worth it to get to this point.
Thanks for all your encouragement my friends, especially to my friend Tracy who urged me to enter in the first place. xxx
