Artist charity exhibition

Updated: Mar 25

Opening your house to strangers in never easy, but what an uplifting and humbling experience it was to host my first open house art exhibition featuring MOI. I got to meet neighbours I had never even seen in the past 12 years I have lived here in the Forest of Dean. One of my collectors( I call him that because he purchased more than one lol..) Mr Ian Pettitt who resides down the road from me, lived in Zimbabwe for 19 years. We shared so many memories especially about Shurugwi. Such a pleasure to hear names long forgotten and I am sure long gone. I met another artist who does portraits and we hope that we will be exhibiting together in the not so distant future. To have another artist purchase your work is quite a compliment I feel. My near neighbours Sue and Tony will soon be leaving for pastures quieter and I will miss them so much. But one of my paintings will be hanging in their new home and that's a lovely thought. One of the most noticeable things though is how people view paintings so differently and how what you think is your best is not even viewed for long lol.. Then there's the paintings that could have sold 10 times over ..however even if I try I am unable to reproduce any of them.

Suffice is to say a very successful couple of days was had and Community Action Trust benefitted 100% contribution from all sales.
