I’m now working in my space, taking my time planning, sketching and studying subject matter to create new artwork. For the last 10 months I have been pressuring myself to create art to exhibit and sell in the gallery, art trails and events. I have realised that I need to take a step back, doContinue reading “Taking time”

Day 3 of the art trail, and, although we are very quiet (thanks to the scorching weather and Wimbledon tennis finals), we have had some lovely conversations with very interested art lovers and some sales.
