|My statement piece - 80x100cm 'Sunset, Albert Bridge'|
My husband Nick and I drove up on the Sunday unloaded a whole van full of stuff and started to unwrap the paintings. Monday spent all day hanging the show.
The room is an old studio used by artists around a 100 years ago. Two doors along Turner had his studio! The high ceilings and homely but grand feel suited my work a lot more than a white square box type gallery.

|46 framed paintings on the wall & 46 unframed|
A huge boost which alleviated my fears and set me up for the rest of the show.

I was lucky to have a friend and collector Natalia on my side she worked hard to get her Chelsea/London contacts into my show, which really helped.
I sold 51 paintings which is AMAZING! So happy and pleased that my work is out there and being enjoyed.
I have worked very hard the past 5 months to paint enough and organise it all. Nick my husband also at the end worked full time on it and was with me throughout the show (a gem!)
It hasn't put me off doing a solo show and I will do another in time.
We are hardly home and now preparing for the Surrey Open Studios, bring it on! I will post again about that soon.
What an amazing experience to share with you Clare. I could not be prouder. The new chapter has began!ReplyDelete
