Consider yourself virtually invited to my third exhibition in 12 months!
We had a good day hanging our paintings & small hangings & I look forward to being in the same place for 6 days! Who know what fortunes I will receive this week but I know I've done my bit, I've enjoyed it & I'll enjoy sitting amongst all our hard work. Thank you for all your kind wishes. My blog break was giving up something I really enjoy - isn't that always the way? -so that I could continue running around like a blue arsed fly chasing my life & finishing off things for the exhibition - I can hear the violins playing in sympathy! So, yes, one day I will have quiet time, put my feet up, recharge, see my work flow naturally, enjoying the process & become refreshed...one day!
Meanwhile, look what I won! I got 2nd prize in Bois Fleurie's giveaway, look at the sweet face on the card & that hair, wonderful! The ribbons & wool on the left was a lovely extra, my colors exactly, too - so generous ;) thank you. Like her ? I love her!
the above 6 squares are the CD pieces from a while ago finally mounted up, pleased with them.
Below are (just) a few images from the Lochalsh Art Fair, I put one piece in this year, my large hanging at the end of this group.
Circles, another one on it's side - tilt right.
Encaustic wax, not sure if you can see the tiny strips of text
Lovely pieces, specially the carved seahorse
Oh dear, tilt left, lovely photo by Ken from my last post & some amazing carved cardboard crustations.
& a lovely stitched fuchsia - I think she & I & the blue one at the bottom were the only stitchers.
A pretty watercolor with ink, tilt left
The one I chse for my best in show, top left if you tilt left!
Sorry for all the tilting!
We had a wonderful request to be witnesses to a German couple coming over here to get married - they stayed with us last year & lovely of them to want to come back. They wanted to marry on their own & hadn't realised they'd need witnesses & asked us to do them that favour. We said we'd be honored. She was very excited, as when her fiance suggested he hire a kilt but she had no dress she was recommended a charity shop down the road from where they were trying on their beautifully made wedding rings & she found one for ........I don't think she'd mind me telling you....£50
Look at it!
Oh, how frustrating! tilt left for his buttonhole
& tilt right for the blushing bride & her bouquet. I couldn't resist making it for her, from 'just witnesses' we became friends, I was practically her bridesmaid! Truly, a fabulous day.
Wish me luck for next week!
Here's some info from Etsy, below that I was asked to share with you all. Hopefully it will inspire me to fill my Etsy shop , empty till after the exhibition ;)
