Many, many years ago I submitted a piece of my work for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition. Back in those days I used to work with textiles and this framed work featured manipulated fabric and stitch and was just gorgeous. Back then you had to traipse up to London to hand it in in person, but things have changed now and the initial selection is done online. So this year, I thought why not? And this is the painting I'm submitting... you never know - pigs do sometimes fly!
and here's more of a closeup to show the detail (painted with acrylics on board with applied papers and text)
