picking up unsold paintings

Well I have reached a new point in my blogdom... I shhall write about feelings... ooohhh!!!!
I was thinking about it in the bath and even got out of it to write this.
Picking up paintings. - So crap, and I have done this twice this week. - You know you won't sell all of them, but so much effort and you sell three.- and two of them to the woman who runs the gallery, and I'm suposed to be relatively successful. You go to pick up the others, which you will have to return to them in a month, and the girl explains they just don't have the room to store them.- Yeah sure. So now they have none of my work to show anyone who may be interested. Its so easy to sell them from my studio,- I don't think. I look on the walls... nice paintings there. Well painted. So well painted they could be photoshopped. They are sole less like a computer game backdrop, not a brush stroke or mark. "We sold out of him at the last fair..." Well there you go,- What am I bothering for, and my works not exactly challenging... I daren't do that anymore, they don't even hang it, that's not what they have come to expect from me. Arrrgh!!!!
Going back to the bath now,- but still feel churned up.

Shadow Place meeting

As you may know I am involved in a new project called Shadow Place.
Last night we had a great meeting, it was lovely, a very relaxed lively chat and discussion that covered life, the universe and everything and played around at the edges of our project too.- We are really gelling as a group.
We looked at the Pulse application and decided to go for 4th and 5th June (Fri and Sat) 8pm - 10pm (sunset is around 9)
we will work on the pieces here before the 14 May showing at Blackthorpe barn and after that we can make more work/change it/ develop it as we like.... that's all we got to so far.oooh very exciting.

Its a new year

I've been in the studio but its so cold it takes the paintings for ever to dry.
I'm finishing off a commission at the moment, working on three paintings for the affordable art fair in March and slogging away at my big snow picture. I started it last year when it snowed, then the snow thawed and I put it aside till this year- its a view from my studio of the front door and the huge Cottoniaster tree, not all that exciting really. Of course when it snowed again out came the painting. The boughs of the tree have grown and then the snow was so heavy it weighed them down. but I quickly painted hoping to get something down before the thaw... Oh its awful but fun. Well its snowed again so I've got another chance to make it bearable... hey ho!
