Two weekends in and I have to say I could get used to using the Baldock Arts Centre as a studio space! It's a lovely airy room with plenty of light and it really shows off my paintings to good effect. Best of all I get people walking in and engaging with me and my work, asking questions, making comments and giving me immediate feedback on what I've done, as well as actually buying some of my paintings, prints or cards!
It's all swings and roundabouts though, as they say. One elderly couple were on their way out having had a quiet look around and as they passed the windows I heard the lady say loudly, "Ooh, what beautiful curtains!"
I'm looking forward to the next couple of weeks as I chat to more visitors and complete my latest cityscape of the Shard. I'm also taking bookings for my workshop on the morning of the 20th, so if you know of anyone who may be interested, please direct them to my website or contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org.
