I had an exciting week. I got to see my work in the Porthleven Baulk Project exhibition. I never get tired of seeing my work in an exhibition. Goodness that sound vain, but really, I do get very excited. This exhibition is of course special, all the money raised with these art works, goes to the Fishermen’s Mission. In case you weren’t aware all the work was made using a piece of the wood from the sea defence baulks, that were destroyed in the storms, two years ago. More details can be found on the baulk project website.
The exhibition was held in a lovely Gallery that used to be a lifeboat station, in the glorious harbour town of Porthleven. As you can see from the picture it’s not massive, but over the week they had over 1,100 people visit. Hopefully that is a good omen for the auction itself to be held on the 18th March.
Here is me with my Painting, like I said exciting……… Squeeeee
So as a result I have finally done something I have been saying I would do for some time. I have booked a gallery for an exhibition of my work. It’s not until next August but that’s great, it gives me plenty of time to put a body of work together. We will of course take some jewellery and some leatherwork, We would be mad not to, but principally it will be all about my paintings. OMG!!! It all sounds very serious. You will of course all be invited.
I need to get a few bits in place but as soon as I can, I will give you lots of details and I may need help for ideas as to what to paint and display ideas, so suggestions and any help, as always gratefully received.
I have painted a new feather recently, I am trying to sort out a frame , it’s certainly not my favourite thing to do. I find framing expensive and difficult to choose the right one. I just like painting them, framing is really no fun! Hopefully I will have a better picture and have it framed by the next time I chat to you. If I can make a decision.
