London Summer Exhibition Visit

After my workshop in Swansea I took the train to London on what was one of the hottest days we’ve seen all summer. The train arrived into London an hour late due to the network taking extra precautions on the hot tracks. The metal of the rails must be different to that in hot countries where temperatures far exceed the 28 degrees we had that day because they travel at normal speed. I had 4 hours to ponder on such things 🙂

London was great, albeit extra vigilent. I saw the Summer Exhibition at the Royal Academy which was always a pleasure.

this screenprinted mono print by Elizabeth Magill, titled ‘Of’. It is huge and just stunning. Interesting that my two favourites are both landscapes.
