So, I’ve been in London for two days now, and am having a wonderful time. I probably could write for several hours right now, except for the fact that I am so tired. I’m staying with some incredible artists, who are also friends of mine, James Hayes and Jo Rea. In central London, they have the most impressive painting studio I’ve ever seen, from which they produce various painting commissions and bronzes. It is just so impressive. James and Jo are submitting stunning works into the BP portrait competition. After they helped me restretch my canvas, they hired a driver, and had my painting delivered to the National Gallery site. Tomorrow, I’m going to sit for a small oil portrait by James, and then see if there are any additional galleries that might be interested in my work. I knocked on the door of about six galleries today, submitted my portfolio, and we’ll see if I can secure anything over here in London. Who knows?
