I can believe how long it is since I posted anything here. It has been such a busy summer. Artistically the most exciting time of my life.
My exhibition at the Garlic Farm came to an end at the weekend. I sold 13 pictures, a mixture of originals and prints, and took 3 commissions. The feedback was also amazing once again. I was so excited that this was my first solo show and it exceeded my expectations. It was also wonderful to share with friends.
This is Eddie with a print of his portrait when he visited. A print of this picture sold here too.
This was one of the originals sold and I have to say I am very sad to see her go.
I exhibited at the garlic festival again which was my most successful yet though it was such a hot weekend I had to contend with melting pencils. I love to work and chat to people at the same time and I met some wonderful people and their dogs.
I have been working incredibly hard but all of the projects are top secret so I can’t share any of them just yet. I will be starting one in the next few days which I can happily share.
I also had a huge decision to make over the past few days as I had the chance to take on a studio. It was in a lovely building with a huge exhibition space and some other lovely artists. The space felt great and I loved it. It also would have been one step closer to my dream.
I (think I) have taken the decision not to go for it as I don’t have enough time yet to commit to a space and make it work. I steal every second possible to create at the moment and time to go to that space and set up would take away from that.
I would also like to exhibit more and visit bigger venues so I will commit to that first. I am sad that I cannot take this opportunity but I am sure it is because there is another one better for me in the future.
My dreams have got bigger this summer and I thank everyone who has visited and commented on my work and inspired me to chase that dream and believe it is possible.
