Thanks for all the good wishes.. they certainly worked... it has been a fantastic ( as well as frenetic) couple of days... and Ruth made a 'big' sale within an hour of opening
Lots of lovely things being said as folk suss it out.....I came home tonight to an email from a local chap who had been a stranger till today saying, after a visit by him and his wife...
Congratulations on the Art Gallery, Studio and sanctuary for wandering souls!
Another said 'Great ambience and very peaceful atmosphere
In fact loads of folk have commented very positively on the atmosphere, many expressed interest in joining in with things and several 'Serious' ( ie Profesional!) painters have visited already too and expressed an interest
I have booked Stephie for the November Exhibition and a demonstration.....
So, although the whole thing is far from finished ... and Ruth has been calling me an energiser bunny until I keep crashing!! ....it is well under way now.
I come back tired... happy and satisfied... but with masses to do.
I have just downloaded photos ( left my camera behind by mistake last night) but doubt Ill get any on teh blog till tomorrow.... but here's a taster... which frankly looked better leaving me thatn arriving with you... oh well !!!
First,what folk see as they come in.... they can see the full range of Ruths wonderful paintings....
and the 'cosy' end !
And across the room to the 'magical slimming mirror'.. ( Im going to start charging! ) and some of my pics some of you will remember from years back as well as more recent pastels and wcs
have to get some more stuff ready for tomorrow.....so these will have to do for now...unless Ruth arrives to add to them
Two days ago I couldnt believe it was going to happen... now it has, it already feels like home... well it has got rugs, curtains cushions from teh house down there !!!!!
I so hope I will see some of you there in person over the coming years......
Thanks for ALL the support so many of you have so generously given me... I dont think TKG would have ever happened without it !! Hopefully it will introduce lots more folk to art and online forumns like WC!
