I brought my work home from Rochdale yesterday. The art trail attracted a lot of visitors who wouldn’t normally look at art, and there were some great comments in the book. People seemed to appreciate having something different to look at in the shopping centre rather than the same old shops. There were over 600 visitors during the two days, and many comments about doing the same again next year. I enjoyed the opportunity to have my work viewed by a new audience, and hope they enjoyed my work.
I am now preparing for the next exhibition of my BA group at Bankfield Museum in Halifax, which will be opening on 4th September. I’ve made a painting especially for this exhibition, and I am even beginning to have faith that it might dry! The folks at Winsor and Newton technical department have been very helpful when I had a query about drying time. I just realise how much there still is to learn about the technical properties of the materials we use.
