After a much needed Christmas break I've just been reflecting on the madness before Christmas. Lessons learnt this year maybe an exhibition two weeks before the holidays whilst completing final commissions was a bit ambitious. Having said that the exhibition went well and it was fab to have shared the experience with my two good friends and art buddies. We left feeling tired, proud and a tad tipsy on the mulled wine.
Sales were good and the all three etchings went to the same collector (apologies for the poor images) which made the experiments in working on a series worthwhile.
Another commission and a first for me was a portrait. Although I have drawn and painted portraits before this was my first commissioned one... yikes....it was a challenge. Unfortunately I made a school girl error and didn't get a good image of the completed piece so here's a progress shot and a "poor" snap of the finished piece.
