This morning I drove through to Rondebosh to submit three watercolours for the selection day for the annual SASA (South African Society of Artists) Exhibition.
They were very well organised and friendly gentleman offered to help me carry my paintings to the queue. The checking ladies made sure the paintings were labeled and forms signed, the acceptors took the paintings and gave me a number and a cheery old fellow took my entry fee. Very slick, very friendly – well done SASA.
These are the paintings I submitted

Kogel Bay Rocks (and it does (o:= )
So lets see how these go – I need to pick up at 17:00 (sharp) tomorrow
This afternoon (12 Sept) I went to pick up the paintings. They have accepted the first two for the exhibition which is really quite exciting. My friend Cherry, the chairlady of the Western Cape Watercolour Group said there were 500 paintings submitted and they accepted 200. So I think that is quite an achievement.
And the exhibition is to be opened by Hazel Soan – which is really cool – her watercolours are so good and her way of working is inspiring to me.
