Right Royal Rejection.

No shame in being rejected by the Royal Academy Summer exhibition this year. One has to have a go. For my own records, and perhaps to give others an idea of the costs involved in trying to get one's work "out there", I have given an account below:

ROYAL ACADEMY SUMMER EXHIBITION 2018.

ARTWORKS SUBMITTED:

Clockwork Mary & Stone Circle (digital print).
Dawn (digital print).

COSTS:

Printing: £10.17 x 2 + 20% VAT = £24.404.
Framing: £58 x 2 + 20% VAT = £139.2.
Entry Fee: £70.

GRAND TOTAL:

£233.604

Had I been accepted to the second stage there would also have been the substantial expense of train fares.
