Hurrah the first batch of work has been delivered – this was to Art In The Mill Gallery for their Summer Salon, part of the FEVA festival.
Bit of a scramble to get everything ready, only picked the work up from the framers on Friday afternoon – the one opportunity to get the work across was on Saturday after work. Rather busy Saturday morning, breakfast was on the hoof in the rush to prep, record, price and pack, then off to work for a rest!
I had wanted longer to reaquaint with the work in its new clothing, somehow framing does make the scruffiest work look ‘proper’. But it is gone now – hopefully someone will love and buy! (still waiting for my millionaire to come along and insist on buying all of it- I would resist of course out of creative modesty, but after subtle persuasions ( poss invovling chocolates, flowers, etc,) I would give in and then live in happy self indulgence until the next one comes along….) Lacking a millionaire I did settle for icecreams….. and then set about prepping the next idea – and as you can see the first ‘stones’ have been hatched. They are carved out of old insulation block so should be much lighter to work with now I want to increase the scale a bit.
Shame about the mess.
