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.
I have been a few times and love the feel of the gallery, it feels comfortable while still holding a challenge. It challenges your ideas but not who you are. I don’t like galleries where they look down their nose at you and make you feel uncomfortable about examining the creations it holds. I think art is for everyone and, in my opinion, this gallery enforces that.
Luckily they have a few open competitions there where I can try to realise that ambition. I thought I would try again with the David Shepherd Wildlife Artist of the Year Competition, I would love to be part of this exhibition and what it stands for. The work done by the foundation for wildlife is incredible and this competition and the artwork help fund their projects. You can find out more here http://www.davidshepherd.org/way/
This year I decided that Scar was going to be my entry.
He is actually the lion from the wonderful South Lakes Wildlife Park so it is from one great cause to another.
Fingers crossed 🙂
