A Little Ambition

Ambition has never been my strong point, I know lots of people who know exactly what they want to do and where they want to go but I just kind of enjoy the journey.  I don't think that is always a bad thing but I do have one ambition for my art and that is to see it hanging in a London gallery, in particular the Mall Gallery.
