© did it!!! After alot of  hard work I managed to get five pieces together for the Society Of Botanical Artists annual Exhibition, The Language of Flowers. Such a memorable day with a very warm welcome from the SBA helpers on submission day (18th February2013)...They were eager for us to share the buzz of the day where many artists travelled from all over the country and further afield. Over 1000 paintings were submitted!! Now we just have to wait to hear from the selection committee! http://www.soc-botanical-artists.org/exhibitions_2013.php

I arrived safely with my paintings :)
