October News Updates for the RBA

ANTHONY YATES has been invited, by a viewer of our RBA website, to spend two free weeks at a beautiful house in Montemarcello, Italy, in order to paint.  He was chosen because the house owner loved his work which she saw online and she is making the house available to him at the time she and her husband are in London.  This is the start of a project which the house owners have in mind. Hopefully they will choose the next recipient of their invitation from the RBA website too!
