Yesterday I went to London to hand over two paintings to a kind client of mine and also deposit two more at the Mall Galleries in the hope they might be considered for the upcoming Society of Women Artists annual show. Fingers crossed - (hey, maybe if I keep my fingers crossed the whole time something miraculous might happen with the contour drawing, there's a thought).
With an hour left to the day I went to see the George Bellows exhibition at the Royal Academy. Loved it. The guy was so lacking in pretentiousness. I could say loads about him but this quote on one of the walls really struck me:
"Try everything that can be done. Be deliberate. Be spontaneous. Be thoughtful and painstaking. Be abandoned and impulsive. Learn your own possibilities." George Bellows, 1920
