My first Open Studio was a great success for me. Lots of lovely people came to see my work and many bought paintings, sketches and cards.
Many thanks to everyone who came to see me and Molly, it was really great to hear your words regarding my work and especially my sketchbooks. I was able to look at my work over the last three years in one place and review where I am and where I could go next.
Special thanks to Clare Conner for supporting me through facebook postings, Jade for also posting on Leatherhead Living, Annie for helping out on all three Saturday afternoons, plus friends from Leatherhead Art Club, Tango Dancers and Malden Bowmen. Cathy Brett made sure I was included on the Leatherhead trail and pushed many people on from her and Tania’s studio. Plus Jill, Linda and Brett for their OS support.
A few figures of interest from the 8 days of Open Studios
30 cards & 19 paintings sold
of which 3/4 were watercolours
People liked Polesden Lacey, local scenes and Venice.
So lots of things to mull over, for the future but I’m pretty sure I’ll be painting watercolour sketches in the near future.
