Being a shopkeeper has sales needs to pay your bills. Today no good news on that side, however I had a good time hosting 8 people doing art for fun and at 230 participants in shop year 2 the figures are already edging towards 3 months ahead of the year 1 figures.
So, the first drawing – a young man who was very clear when gp he had finished.
I worked on a drawing of my son Charlie at a talk at work about water safety, I gifted him the drawing later.
Then a regular young girl without her brother and his usual Minecraft creeper drawings, I was introduced to Shopkin – that was a new term for me, I chose to try drawing it too and gifted my drawing.
I then started to try a drawing of a traction engine based on a still from a friend’s video – also gifted later in the day and I was pleased with how it went.
Two regulars – mum and son. O got cold so we ended up with him in two of my jackets which absolutely swamped him but kept him warm.
I did two boating pics based on the club dinghy I sail the most a RS Feva X-LARGE and then one of a friend kayaking with dolphins.
Two sisters joined me for some drawing and also 3 of a local family I have hosted many times and two of the children have drawn with me at their primary school too.
I got to draw 6 pieces, I got to gift several of them on the day to participants or local friends, several new people tried art for fun as well as repeat visitors.
Ok no sales but I had a fun days drawing and that’s what counts too.<div class='sharedaddy sd-block sd-like jetpack-likes-widget-wrapper jetpack-likes-widget-unloaded' id='like-post-wrapper-123416164-8561-65167dd2b1eb8' data-src='https://widgets.wp.com/likes/#blog_id=123416164&post_id=8561&origin=andyknillart.com&obj_id=123416164-8561-65167dd2b1eb8' data-name='like-post-frame-123416164-8561-65167dd2b1eb8' 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>
