So, early to the shop to do a bit more organising and decision making about furniture to move / take apart pre move to ‘AndyKnillArt Studio’ next Tuesday 31 for opening on Wed. Sept 1st at 10.00 a.m.
Some admin done as well. Today was a much more encouraging day for the number of people in and around the courtyard and visitors to the shop. Chats re art for fun, where people came from fun and a visit from Vanessa an ex teaching colleague from 20 years ago who was having a short break at the seaside. I sold cards, postcards, original postcards and a print which was all very gratifying.
A couple from Croydon who lived just a few houses along the road from where my grandparents had lived in South Croydon, such a small world.
I also took the time to continue with the fisherman’s area on Peveril to the south of the bay, I must decide on a title for this by Wednesday when I take it to the printer. I finished the piece.
One of the bands at the folk festival used my sketch of them in a story on Instagram which was very touching.
As Java was shut today I put the art for fun board out at the entrance to the courtyard – it didn’t actually lead to anyone taking part but I did mention it to several families today and had some good chats about ProMarkers, colour charts and blender use, I will issue it this way now while still at The Courtyard Studio.
A good day and Monday 30th will be my last Monday selling at this location.<div class='sharedaddy sd-block sd-like jetpack-likes-widget-wrapper jetpack-likes-widget-unloaded' id='like-post-wrapper-123416164-6161-61e71b41e4e8f' data-src='https://widgets.wp.com/likes/#blog_id=123416164&post_id=6161&origin=andyknillart.com&obj_id=123416164-6161-61e71b41e4e8f' data-name='like-post-frame-123416164-6161-61e71b41e4e8f' 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>
