There are lots of advantages to not selling through commercial galleries, such as being able to keep my prices affordable. But one disadvantage is that I have to house and display all my own works which requires wall space. I have run out of this precious commodity again.
I hope that some of my pictures will find new homes to go hang out in during my exhibition coming up in May. I do love exhibiting – so many wonderful people turn up, both browsers and buyers with who it is simply delightful to talk pictures and drink tea.
|I’ve been thinking about ways in which I can publicise my show and thought it wouldn’t do any harm to ask the editor of Artists and Illustrators magazine (pictured right) if he could run a feature on my work in the May edition to co-incide with my exhibition. Well, would you Adam and Eve it?! I had a phone call from him, a lovely bloke called John Swinfield, and he said he would! Talk about lucky – he said he’d picked me out from hundreds of hopefuls because he liked my picture Thames Magic at Eynsham and would illustrate the article with this.|
I’m absolutely thrilled and amazed about it. Don’t forget to buy your copy. I believe it’ll be on sale at the end of March.
