Well thanks to all who came to my show at the village hall in Lythe, Whitby. It was a successful event, with lots of visitors. I was encouraged that my marketing efforts had paid off. I did a lot of talking over the week end which is always the case at my shows. What really encouraged me was the reaction to my work by a new audience - the comments 'lively' 'uplifting' and 'lots of character' spring to mind, and if I could chose words to describe what I wanted to give people in my work then these would be pretty close I think! My one hour taster workshops seemed to really hit the spot, it was lovely to get such a positive response to introducing some techniques that people were keen to go away and develop.
Now I am looking forward to getting out and about exploring the region rather more and continue with my sketching and painting. I hope to be involved with a group event in early December at Staithes.
