More than 8,000 paintings are sent annually to the Royal Academy’s summer exhibition in Piccadilly, but only a few will make it on to the gallery walls. S.O.F.A. member Jennifer Rampling was one of the unlucky painters not to be picked.
Her oil pastel ‘The Field of Rocks’ has been accepted in The Not The Royal Academy exhibition at the Llewellyn Alexander Gallery in Waterloo.
Jennifer will also be exhibiting several of her oil pastels in the S.O.F.A. show at the Llewellyn Alexander Gallery from August 22 to September 20.
A frequent star of her paintings is one of her four cats, Wilbur, who, in two works, can be seen in a Celtic window and set against an eerie Halloween night with a spooky castle behind him.
Jennifer said: “We rescued him a few years back. I was looking after him, he was in a bad condition and very hungry. He’s a beautiful cat.”
