Exhibition time - the Selection Committee

Select?  Reject?

This is a painting from 10 years ago.  This year's exhibitions are in full swing and I thought I might dig out this appropriate painting showing a lively moment during selection at the Mall Galleries.
The people are real!  Vivien Mallock the sculptor, Morgan Llewellyn , David Seekings and the late wonderful Libbie Pike.

Thoughts of warm days to come

In a Monastery Garden - oil, 16 x 16 inches (40 x 40 cm)
In February we were on holiday in beautiful Colombia and visited this ancient monastery (Santo Ecce Homo, near Villa de Leyva).  The archway, its irregular structure and the plants kept calling "Paint me!".  So I have.  I started with a more contemporary idea in mind but the amount of foliage forced me away from my original wish.  Too tricky for my planned version.  I'm happy with how it has turned out as it has kept what attracted me to the subject.
