A misty start and a forecast for rain possibly later. I only had one visitor before midday – Pamela from Swanage, we had a good chat and hot drink and she also walked out to the of the Tout and back and was able to report back about limited views.
Numbers seemed to be settling at about 12 with an afternoon lull and I even went indoors to collect a blanket, neck warmer, hat and quilted jacket. As I came out a new stream of visitors arrived and I had company to just before 4.30.
In my quiet time today I did further work on my Rowing below Durlston piece that is progressing well. At lunchtime as the rain started I moved the art activity into the “Garage Gallery”.
Afternoon visitors included Tony Kerins and family, Jacob my ProMarker acolyte and his parents and several other local artisans that I know from the Boilerhouse Gallery in Corfe and from Artisans on the Beach. The coloured overalls were popular as was the art card activity. There were also a number of dogs who enjoyed their treats and most tried to assure me they should be allowed seconds although their owners asserted otherwise.
So more card sales and a framed Hungry Hare Print today. A total of 32 visitors taking Open Studio 22 up to 322 in 9 days.
Here are today’s art cards / drawing done.
This is the latest on the rowing piece mentioned (this piece has already been reserved, so is no longer available).
Thanks for reading.
