SALA - a great start

Besties
28.5cm x 38cm on Saunders Waterford CP 300gsm
Wow its just one week into our big SALA Arts festival here with four more weekends of open studio to go. I had some lovely visitors last weekend and a painting of fresh berries now has a red sticker attached so that was good.


Last night was the opening of the exhibition at The Kensington Hotel where I have 8 of my animal works on show and three other artists have abstracts, portraits and photography. It was a fabulous opening and I came home thrilled with 3 sales - Zebra, Emu and Meerkats. Lovely comments from attendees so a really good night.

I took a day out on Tuesday to visit some other local SALA exhibits and other social events have kept me out of the studio practically all week. I have at last done a bit of pre drawing on two works that I can paint during this weekends open studio. Besties was painted last weekend in between talking with visitors.

8 works from my All Creatures Great and Small Collection on Show

Delighted with the opening at The Kensington Hotel
