Normally, when people ask about my qualifications, I say PhD Calcutta failed..................
However the RPS seem to know some thing I don't.

Entered the Corsica Grand Exhibition 2014.  Haven't felt like taking many images lately, so was a bit of a perk to get two accepted.  Maybe I'll blow the dust of the camera and get out and about more.

Foraged locally.


And the fog rolled in.


Got one acceptance from Rushden Open Exhibition.  This is a BPE sponsored exhibition and my total of acceptances is now 25.  This means I can apply for my BPE Crown I award.  Could have got there sooner, but thought you had to put new images in for each exhibition,

The weather has been so poor for landscapes, I've done some more still lives.


Sunday, 16 February 2014


The last still life I did was to be called 'Wine, Women and song', or even 'free love', but I was told I do too many cryptic crossword puzzles. 
The wine is obvious, the pear was a symbol of the female during the Renaissance period and the song was obvious.   This was all above the Rose and therefore no secret as it would have been if it was Sub Rosa.
This image is entitled 'Eve in Eden'.

So much rain.  I stayed indoors and played  with a still life.
