What a week!

So, this turned out to be an eventful week!

Last weekend I was offered my first solo exhibition and this weekend 3 pieces of my work went into a local gallery. Today I joined a number of local artists at the gallery, Thirteen Brushes in Colchester, for a visit from a journalist from the Essex Chronicle, who is putting a piece into Thursday's edition about local artists.

It seems a lot can happen in 7 days.

I'm obviously hoping to sell the pieces or for them to start to generate interest in my work. I met some really interesting other artists, some who are very successful and have had very interesting careers and others who, like myself are just starting out.

The coming week will seem quiet by comparison! I'm still waiting to hear back about the studio space and next week I'll find out if my last submission of the year has got through the pre-selection process.

If I am successful selling my pieces then I may have to look into becoming VAT registered....I never thought that something like that would be such an exciting prospect...or an ambition!
