My two paintings were 30 x 30 cm (the trees) and 40 x 40 cm (the brush) in size. The latter is on a “box” canvas – that is, one with a deep edge. The smaller one nestled very nicely inside the larger, so I only had to worry about carrying 40 x 40 x 4 cm of painting across London – through the streets and on the tube.
The dress code said “casual”, but I decided this might not mean jeans. I wore linen trousers instead – far more suited to the weather.
It was very hot.
Today was the Mervyn Peake Award Ceremony in London. I attended, and will be writing about the day, but, in the meantime, I am posting my entries and how they did.
