I’ve been working on new floral studies, continuing the theme of tulips, which are now available to view on the website at http://www1.clikpic.com/paulcoghlin/gallery_367578.html
From the Royal Academy’s website:
“Held annually since the Royal Academy’s foundation in 1768, the Summer Exhibition is a unique celebratory showcase for art of all styles and media, encompassing paintings, sculpture, photography, prints, architectural models, film, and artist’s books. Historically, the exhibition has also provided an opportunity for Royal Academicians, many of whom are internationally renowned, to show their work.
Following long Academy tradition, the exhibition is curated by an annually rotating committee of Royal Academicians who are all practicing artists and architects. Any artist may enter work for selection – over 12,000 works are submitted for consideration every year and around 1200 are exhibited. The Academy works hard to encourage a diverse range of artists to enter and, as a result, well over 100 artists are included every year who have not previously exhibited in the Summer Exhibition”.
The exhibition is on from 7th June to 15 August 2011.

A selection of my new prints is now available through the Weston Gallery in Carmel, California, including a number of fishing boat and seascapes, taken on a few recent trips to the Suffolk coast, here in eastern England.
As with my other prints at the gallery, the new images are printed on archival-quality Hahnemühle Fine Art paper and are available in 11″ x 11″ and 15″ x 15″ sizes, matted, with the option of framing at time of purchase also available.
