I put three pictures in for the Chelsea Art Society summer exhibition and was pleased that all three were accepted. More significantly I felt thrilled and privileged to have one of my paintings, "Midday light - Putney Footbridge" attributed with the status "highly commended"! One of only two pictures to have this recognition out of over 650! Being recognised by ones peers is most satisfying. My congratulations go to the 10 artists who were given awards.
