Hi folks!

Thanks for your comments - WC is a great place.

The show is a solo in a wee gallery in a country town...but it is 25 pictures which have seen blood, sweat and tears...well, not really but it has been a steep learning curve (and I can't wait for the next one!).

I hadn't thought of taking a camera to the preview but I will.

Fiona - totally understand about the nerves and angst - I have sent out 1500 exhibition catalogues, and haven't had ONE bite! I am now absolutely panic-stricken.

Just one thing to remember. Sales do not reflect necessarily the excellence of the work. It is much more to do with how wealthy people are feeling right now, and whether they can afford a luxury item like a picture. Gone are the days of affluence and easy sales. I have absolutely NO DOUBT your pictures will be much admired, and it is important to realise that this is valuable too, even if it isn/t much consolation when there is ahuge framing bill to meet!

It is a lottery. Some artists always do well, despite the downturn in fortunes these days -most are artists who have got the whole package right - the price doesn't matter if you are a collectible artist, someone with an established track record which means that your work will increase in value and is an investment. for those less qualified and established, it is a question of getting a) the subject right (think you have) b) the price right (?) and c) numbers thro the door to see the work.

Keep all your fingers and toes crossed!

will be thinking of you
