Day 19 Sunday 23rd December
Sunday, due to be light rain, but then apart from a drizzly phase a cloudy and mainly dry day. A mixed day. Away from my art focus I had my day affected by a conversation with my eldest son – he has figured in posts on my personal blog previously. Today I have to pass on my thanks to my fellow artisans for their support and for Anne for coming down to be with me.
Later I was making the most of the penguin outfit to be – #penguinonthewall, #friendlypenguin, #penguinthatdraws.
Sales today included “Looking at wintery sky” which I framed while the customer was dog walking with their family – the second framed print of this to go in two days, in fact down to one copy at the artisan yard of current print run.
I also had a commission for some pictures of geckos from Ibiza collected.
Then there were 10 cards sales boosting Christmas card sales now to 385 across the four designs in just under 13 months – a series to continue with next year’s cards already planned ready for drafting and drawing in January.
So a day of up and down moods, silliness as a penguin, cake provided for the artisans, a chips treat, meeting return customers and people that lived in area we are previously. This December is proving to be my most successful month since AndyKnillArt started on Jan. 31 2017.
Also some ideas about possibly going into developing a rental unit as a follow up to Artisans on the Beach, this may well not work but a good positive focus this morning at least.
Oh and I bought myself a rather nice fishy piece from my neighbouring artisan.<div class='sharedaddy sd-block sd-like jetpack-likes-widget-wrapper jetpack-likes-widget-unloaded' id='like-post-wrapper-123416164-1123-647a66bd0ee08' data-src='https://widgets.wp.com/likes/#blog_id=123416164&post_id=1123&origin=andyknillart.com&obj_id=123416164-1123-647a66bd0ee08' data-name='like-post-frame-123416164-1123-647a66bd0ee08' data-title='Like or Reblog'><h3 class="sd-title">Like this:</h3><div class='likes-widget-placeholder post-likes-widget-placeholder' style='height: 55px;'><span class='button'><span>Like</span></span> <span class="loading">Loading...</span></div><span class='sd-text-color'></span><a class='sd-link-color'></a></div>
