Art Stuff stall Part 2
Could it have been any hotter on Saturday for our Fete? Surely not . . . .
It was even hot at 8.00am when I went down to get set up, only to find that my gazebo had blown over in the violent thunderstorms we had had overnight. But all was quickly put to rights, and I got set up with lots of time to spare. When I took this photo some of the other stalls hadn’t even go their gazebos up, while I was ready to get started – I’d allowed far too much time!
The jute bags proved popular, so I’m going to order more of these ready for my Open Studios event which is on the last weekend in September. I also sold quite a few cards, but got the impression that it was too hot for many people to even feel like looking – they just wanted to head to the bar tent, or the ice-cream, or the barbeque, or the café which was inside the cool church!
I’m busy with some small paintings at the moment, for a Christmas Card idea I’ve had. It involves five little pieces – I’m on number three at the moment, and I’m really pleased with how it’s all coming together. It seems a bit weird to be thinking about Christmas cards in July, but I want to ‘launch’ the final card packs at my Open Studio weekend and obviously they take time to paint, and then get printed – I’ll post some photos of them then!
I’ve also made a start, today, on framing the four paintings that will be going to the Haylett’s Gallery in Maldon later this week, ready for their summer mixed exhibition. They are . . . . .
Lots to do!!
Hope you’re having a good week, whatever you are doing. 🙂
