So to update you all on how the assessment day went for the Society of Floral painters… They accepted me, so I am officially a full member! I was very surprised but extremely pleased to get the letter!
They gave me a lot of constructive criticism, but I was grateful for that. I’ve never had my work formally assessed, so it was refreshing to hear how I can improve.
I was thoroughly spoilt this weekend by my Mum. I got these amazing flowers through the post. When re-arranging them I thought the hydrangea on its own was so spectacular, I wanted it separate from the rest of the arrangement so I could admire it properly. So it’s in a separate vase and will be going by my bed.
This surprise has made me even more excited to see my parents when they come down for the exhibition – next weekend!
