Summer Expedition entry.

I got a response from the Royal Academy by email on Friday night saying...

Dear Andrea McNeill, 
Thank you for submitting your entry "PARISIAN ENTRANCE".

We very much hope that you will submit work in future years.

Which I suppose is a bit of a poo, but then I knew the odds were against me anyway!!!  I may give it another two more goes just to see if I get past the first hurdle but in any case, I do have a nicely framed painting hanging up in my flat now!!


  1. Oh... How can they not want it? It's so beautiful!!!

    1. well, seeing they usually get 12,000 entries, which they have to first cut down to 4,000 and out of them, only 600 get chosen...... it's VERY competitive!

  2. 12,000 entries is a lot of entries for them to sort through, out of the 12,000 entries it's still my favorite.

  3. I give it a 1st place award Beanie! You can open an art gallery in your home :)

  4. I agree - you're #1 in my books! I love that painting.
