The postman has just delivered a really thin letter from the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition - immediately I knew it was a no from the judges. I will try again next year though -
On the upside (and believe me there always has to be several of them!) when I went to London to submit my print to the Academy I went to the Liberty Print Department with my good friend Geraldine and treated myself to this exquisite original small japanese woodblock print by Tanaka Yoshinosuke dated 1928. I love it! I would like to know more about this artist and his inspiring work. Liberty has lots of prints by Yoshinosuke in their department - perhaps I will go in and get another when I am in London to collect my print from the academy- better start saving up now!
