A big thank you for everybody who I spoke to, at my first ever trade show and K for all his help. We set off on Saturday for Exeter and I was feeling petrified, not really knowing what to expect. I will post the painting of the dog I was doing in the quiet moments very shortly, I just wanted to get a chance to finish it first. I should of got it finished but I was finding it hard to concentrate on all the detailed bits.

Oh this is so exciting, I'm not surprised you were nervous I would have been petrified! Congratulations on your first show, your stand looks amazing and I hope lots of good things come from it.

Well Done Jo ! It's so hard to have the self confidence to talk to people about yourself and your art. Not that you need to worry, your watercolours are SOO LOVELY!!Hope you got lots of interest. It looks like a pretty stand you designed. Take care XX Eleanor

Oh this looks beautiful, all of it, the handmade bunting, the way you have displayed your work, the table cloth and tea pot and cups, flowers, really very pretty, and none of it overpowers your work. I hope it was successful for you.

Hi Joanna,
Somehow I have been to your site, did you have a link on CL ?
Your paintings are so lovely. Have you ever had an exhibition, if so, can you give me any tips,as it is my first . Nice to hear from you.

MILLY said...

Yes Joanna,it was the covered boxes that took me to your blog .I am sorry,I should have told you how lovely your stand looks. My website seems to have gone off,a Fault!So might be time to try to join up somewhere else and start a new one,and link it to blog.
Concentration is surely not something you lack,can't believe that,so much work and detail in your super cards. Milly x
