Alice Holt Artists Christmas show 09

It's that time of year again!
I can't beleive we've just staged our annual Christmas art show agian. Doesn't time fly.

As usual my DH Mike, myself and our friend Shirley, whose web site is in the making, had a great show at the Forestry Commission, for the third year running.

I was pleased to have put together 18 pieces most of which were new work, and some were pieces that I'd completed on my C&G.

As ever Mike had plenty of work to show and a lovely selection of his African pictures, which proved very popular.

Shirley's Lino prints looked beautiful and I'm rather hoping I might get her lovely Heron, in the foreground, in my Christmas stocking :-)

I was pleased to sell my first mini quilt, especially as I was told it was a Christmas present for an interior designer.

The punk on the left was also a Christmas present for someone's brother.

The lizard was a new lino print, the inspiration for which came from our African safari, so it was particularly satisfying to sell it, as I have decided to return to my lino printing after being very inspired by Shirley'e lovely work.

It was also nice to sell African inspirations, on the left, as I'm planning to make my quilt for the FOQ 2010 on this theme.

It was lovely to meet up with lots of people and have the chance to display some new work, to an enthusiastic audience.

What a lovely show and so many gorgeous exhibits in a variety of skills. Well done on selling those pieces - it is so gratifying isn't it when someone likes one's work enough to buy it?

Congratulations on your sales and a successful show. Your husband's photographs of your safari are stunning too, especially the large zebra group.

Hope this isn't a repeat- first one came up error.

Well done all of you on a well presented show and 'sales' too. A well deserved boost to the ego.
