Derbyshire Open Arts was an enjoyable weekend. We were a little apprehensive as the weather was very good. Sunday was the quietest day due to the glorious sunshine (dammit!) Still over the weekend we had over 230 visitors. Painting in the gallery window was not as scary as I expected and people took great interest in what I was painting and how I was painting it. One real surprise was the encouraging comments about my Face-a-Day books. With this I am planning to sketch a face a day for the whole of 2009. The faces are sort of doodles and often represent my current state of mind, some are grumpy and some are happy!
Thanks to everybody that attended, bought paintings and visited to show support. In some cases all three!
