Last weekend was my first Open Studios at Northlight Art Studios, which I moved into in January this year.  It was a very busy weekend, with lots of visitors.  I found that people seemed more comfortable looking in my space when I wasn’t in it, so spent most of the time welcoming visitors at the door, or visiting other artists.  By the Sunday afternoon, however, I was ready to reclaim my studio, so sat in it and did some drawing, which didn’t seem to disuade visitors from coming in.

The painting is one that I did especially for Northlight’s 20th birthday group exhibition, which consisted of 20 pieces of work which we sold by silent auction.  This piece is acylic on paper.  Sadly I forgot to photograph it before I framed it, so it is also a self portrait as you can see my reflection in it.  I was delighted that it sold and raised quite a bit of money for the studios. 
Now I am heading into the summer holidays, I might have time to think (and paint!) again.  That’s after I get some sleep.
