2014 - Titchfield Arts and Crafts Show - review

Fox by Moonlight
I set out to collect my remaining paintings knowing that one had been sold and found out when I arrived that I had sold another!

Oh joy! And then they told me that Surveillance: Arctic Wolf had been 'Commended' by the judge - so, in a roundabout way, it was three out of three!

I say goodbye now to the coloured version of Fox by Moonlight, and to the pastel painting of a tawny owl, Vigilance. I miss them already, but hope they are much loved in their new homes.

I am so glad I took part in this, having only heard of it from the White Dog Gallery in Lee on Solent - it was fantastically well organised, the organisers themselves couldn't have been more friendly & helpful and the show itself was a delight to attend. The range and quality of work, and the sense of community spirit were all equally inspiring.

Yes, I really must take part again next year & if you, dear reader, are a local artist and you haven't yet submitted to this show, then I insist you do, too!
