Sun came out today and I have made two sales of the same print.

The first serious money I have made from the art. Thought I would share the celebrations all round.

Opening day Ta Ra

Am all set up, after some last minute panics. (I broke a tooth and yesterday had to get a dentist to sort it out) The hanging could be better and may improve as the days go on, this is a two week fiesta.

Exhibition countdown

Dorset Art Weeks starts on Saturday. (Today being Thursday afternoon). I had a panic that the disadvantage of a garden studio is that people walk through the garden Doh! So have done a massive catch up on the veggie patch, sowing seeds and bought some tomato plants from the Sunday Boot Market for the greenhouse. It has all been neglected for the sake of Art this year, so cheating seems fair.

In addition to the cabin studio We have put up a tent and my husband is making some display boards to put in it. He found some white faced 'Finnish fiber board', so it all looks bright and clean. Not ready to hang pictures yet so tomorrow will be a busy day.

For anyone in the area of southern England, Hastings Museum and Art Gallery in the Old Town Hall are going to put on what looks to be an interesting showing of Japanese Prints, from 21 June - 05 October

My own plans are progressing and we have set up a small display in the town library to promote the brochure for Dorset Art Weeks. Meanwhile I am still pricing. I have roped in my husband to make up some boards and the material for a prototype is coming tomorrow. Will photo them if they work out.

We had the children and grandchildren down for a wet weekend, but managed to get to a kite flying competition on Weymouth Beach and to the local Roast hog and fete on the village green in Fordington.
