Bouyed by my "success" at getting an image accepted in to the Fareham Open Art Exhibition, I upped the ante and entered another into the Open Art competition at the National Trusts Mottisfont Abbey. This competition is well regarded by the local "proper" artists so it was with some trepidation that I awaited the relevant notification. You can imagine my amazement when I was accepted!
Today, was the day for the delivery of the images for the exhibition. I'm always nervous, at this stage, as there are so many things that can go wrong between me uploading the image to the lab and the final delivery. Perhaps, it's because I have a fixed idea of how the image should look or that I'm particular about presentation - I don't know. This time I thought I'd allowed plenty of time, ie 3 weeks, but still managed to have a minor panic when nothing had appeared after two. I phoned the lab to confirm delivery dates, only to be told that they'd rejected the first image and that was why things had been delayed. Only a week to go to the exhibition submission date!
Anyway, after a few more calls the images arrived today - two days before submission and they look stunning. What was I worrying about? Big thanks to all at One Vision Imaging for you help and assistance - I will never doubt you again!
Fingers crossed that I managed to sell now.
The image in question, "Passion" will appear on the website for sale shortly. If you can't wait, however, a low res copy has been posted on my twitter feed @pureimageworks.
