Mixed day but successful prep.
So up earlier and dropped off brochures as requested before being dropped off to open the shop this morning. I set up outside the shop as early sunniness, but it clouded over and a few raindrops that became a shower and meant cleaning away inside. This was repeated twice.
I took some photos from the art weeks brochure and did some online marketing / posts.
I did then get on with taking the flattened relief print piece, working out the best mount for a 20” by 16” frame.
Labelled the print and frame and packed for transporting it too.
This afternoon I developed the boiler suit further completing the fourth landscape in colour and drawing the black line work for a fifth. I have added a label that says work in progress.
So quite productive in the end. The shop had some visitors including a couple who had visited in previous location as well and had realised we had met before. But again compliments but no sales, this did affect my mood I admit. I know this is a wider problem for all non essential sales in the current financial situation but this month has included so many spheroid sales days already, I am finding it disheartening.
After work, took the car down, loaded up work and went off to hand my work and some for another Open studio in town in at Rollington Barn. One lady artist I have not seen before seemed genuinely interested in my decorated boiler suits so I have said to chat to me at the Private view on Friday evening. It was nice to see other artists I know at hand in and catch up a bit.
Home and an evening of video clips and relaxing followed by Silent Witness new series episode one.<div class='sharedaddy sd-block sd-like jetpack-likes-widget-wrapper jetpack-likes-widget-unloaded' id='like-post-wrapper-123416164-7975-6426d4c80ec86' data-src='https://widgets.wp.com/likes/#blog_id=123416164&post_id=7975&origin=andyknillart.com&obj_id=123416164-7975-6426d4c80ec86' data-name='like-post-frame-123416164-7975-6426d4c80ec86' 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>
