I have been incredibly busy with all sorts of things other than art and blogland. Now I have one remaining task, a day trip to deliver my daughter to London Airport: she is off to her boyfriend in the US (Denver) for three months. They spend the whole time doing road trips - very few places they hasn't visited. How does she get time off work? He's also her boss ... which kinda helps! Nice work if you can get it!
You may recall that Pat had booked us into various venues where she could sell my pictures. The first one got flooded out with all the rain, but the second one was yesterday, at Wentworth Garden Centre
I confess to having been sceptical ... a garden centre? Well it was like no other garden centre I've seen ... it was more, 'a way of life!'
We were sharing space with jewellery makers, glass blowers etc ... no other artists. I had my Yorkshire collection - which everyone admired, but nobody bought ... but ... we sold out of prints of The Entrance to Poets Corner - Westminster Abbey London, which is pleasing as it is the first time I've offered it to public scrutiny ... apart from my buddies in 'here'.
I also picked up a commission to draw a castle! Will let you know the details as things progress.
Meanwhile I'm doing battle with the most complicated drawing I've ever done The Cloisters at Gloucester Cathedral. All you Harry Potter fans will know the scene, without knowing that you do, it's one of the main 'corridors' in Hogwart's
