The next step…

November is a crazy month… and it just got crazier. I have decided to take some of my art to a local craft fair (details below). It’s a real first for me as I’ve never offered my art for sale before. The fair is next Saturday (23rd)*. If you happen to be in the neighbourhood, it would be so very cool to see you there.

Halswell Lions Club Craft Fair
Saturday 23rd November, 9 AM – 1 PM
Halswell Hall
Halswell Road
Christchurch (New Zealand)

P.S. For the curious among you, the Runner image is based on this doodle.

* PLEASE NOTE: Unfortunately, the craft fair was cancelled. Organisers say there were not enough stall holders to make it worthwhile holding the event.

  1. Wish I could be there (for one thing, it’s the dead of winter here! And I would love to see your wonderful work in person)! I like the runner painting a lot. It reminds me of a dream I had recently in which I was running, then climbing an impossible precipice. Crazy!

    1. Thanks, Sharon. Of course I’ll let you know how the fair goes — although I’m not expecting a lot. It’s being run at a time of year when there are so many things on… I’m not even sure how much advertising it’s getting or if there will be any other paintings for sale. Still, I only have to wait a week to find out!

    1. Thank you, Dave. I wasn’t planning to offer anything for sale until next year but a friend talked me into it… probably just the little push I needed. Now I’m varnishing madly and hoping everything dries in time!

  2. That’s really exciting about the fair, Anna. You’re so prolific, I can’t believe you haven’t offered it for sale before. Hope it’s a fun and successful day!

    1. Thanks so much, Psyren. While I have had one commission, I’m not counting that (because it was commissioned). I’ve only been painting ‘seriously’ for a couple of years (apart from when I was a serious 10-year-old artist, that is!)… and I’ve never tried to sell any of my paintings. Until now. Let’s just say it’s been a long time coming ; )

    1. Thanks, Najlaa. Unfortunately I’ve just found out that the fair has been cancelled (it seems they didn’t have enough stall holders to make it worthwhile). I’ll be posting about it tomorrow.
