We finally got set up, for the exhibition by 9.30pm last night! It took us 5 hours from start to finish, so I suppose that wasn't too bad. Not much left to do this morning apart from a few more lables etc.
I decided to add some information about the pieces I was showing, as I often get asked where my inspiration comes from, so this turned out to be another add on, especially as I'd missed out a couple of pieces and had to do them quickly this morning. It didn't help that my dear OH had left me with no fresh blades in the Stanley knife, so I had to use a scalple, not very easy when you're trying to cut through foam board in a hurry!
Anyway the day went off very well with lots of visitors and I ended up by selling seven works and my OH sold ten!!
Interestingly enough I think it was my explanation of the work, that I wrote up this morning, that helped to sell my most
This is what I wrote about it 'This piece was created as a result of my studies into iconography used in India and China. For me this image represents a calmness and contemplation that is often lacking in the modern world.
Two more days to go so lets hope our good fortune holds out.
Many, many thanks to all those who wished us luck!
