Well I think it was a success!!!
Sold two paintings to the same delightful lady who seemed to love my work... did wonders for my ego!! One was from my folder
Paint my Photo
and the other was one of the nudes I did, this was framed but the lady was buying it for a friend who was visiting from Canada and thought it would be better without the frame for ease of transport back to Canada.
I did make one or two more contacts and gave my name to a local art group who may be interested in me doing a workshop for them. I also met a young artist named Liam Dickinson...... this is his website
He is trying to make a living as a professional artist but works at Tesco at the weekends to supplement his income, he does wonderful portraits and has just ventured into the world of IPAD drawings. He also has quite few demos on you tube.... check this one out.... Alan Sugar, painted in......guess what? Sugar!!!!!
Alan Sugar Speed Painting
So all in all a good day for me, met some lovely people and though I didn't make a fortune always feels good to have someone like your work enough to actually buy it....... thank you Linda!!!
