I'd like to thank all of my friends and family who dropped in to see my artworks. I am particularly grateful for my wonderful Mum, Jan, who worked tirelessly as my sales agent, and a big thanks also goes to my partner Craig who spent most of the weekend at the gallery serving up drinks and food, and running the EFTPOS machine out to the carpark to get mobile network reception!
Inconjunction with the exhibition, I ran 2 workshops at the gallery. A great time was had by all, and it generated lots of interest in future workshops which will keep me very busy. Its wonderful that so many people were inspired by my colourful prints and are now keen to explore their creativity.
So now I need a few days to recuperate, unpack the car and put EVERYTHING back into my studio in a place where I can find it..... that will be the tricky bit!
