after the show is over.......

Well what a day at the first Art Markets of the year. The show was full of amazing fellow artists I could of spent a fortune! 

The day was busy with lots of lovely comments about the work. With one lady purposely striding up to say she must have one of my new Daisy chain vases and promptly bought it. 

My 'Best of British' bunting went down a storm and was commented on by lots of fellow exhibitors. My flowers reflecting the red, white and blue theme through too. And someone even stole one of my strawberries from my fruit bowl, positive thinking for a lovely British summer if it ever gets started. My Daisy Chains and Daisy Daisy lines were displayed on pieces of green grass coloured carpet to add to the summertime feel. 

I hope everyone who visited had a lovely day I came home with a James Green print of 'Gamboling Lambs' bought  for me as a present by the OH. Bless him I did drop very big hints about a David Cooke hare but to no avail maybe next time ;-) photo to follow of that one. 

I couldn't of done any of it without the wonderful help from Stephen who got a little stern when I picked up the heavy stuff but I soon put it down again.
He did make me speak to everyone who came over to the stand and to be honest it was a positive move as I am sure by saying they could touch the work I had a few more sales than normal. One lady commented that you are often not allowed to touch the exhibits and she then took great pleasure in picking up and feeling the ones she liked before picking her favourite piece and purchasing it.  So thank you Stephen for that too. I may be trying that one again soon.
