Today I visited the Summer Exhibition at the Royal Academy.
There were over a thousand exhibits and installations. A long, lazy, late lunch was needed and enjoyed afterwards.
I love art, but I am no expert and certainly cannot claim to know any more than liking what I like. Nevertheless here are three of my favourites from the day.
This is by Eileen Cooper. I could have chosen any of hers on display there. I had not seen her work before today. She is now a new adored artist.
The colours in this painting by John Wragg are striking, as is the girl with her look of haughty, bored disdain.
As regular readers may know, I particularly enjoy figurative art – particularly portraying women. However, this by Suzanne Moxhay caught my attention with its wonderful other-worldliness.
It was a good day.
