The Christchurch Art Show opens on Thursday night. This is a mock-up of how I imagine my paintings could look at the venue, complete with table, portfolio and business cards.
Having never exhibited my work before (apart from student exhibitions and last year’s mini market), this show is altogether unfamiliar territory. It’s a ‘cash and carry’ event which means that artists have to replace artworks as they are sold. As it is, I’ve already accidentally sold something I painted for the show, Landscape in the late afternoon (with cows), which was a totally unexpected and wonderful surprise (one of my best friends called in for a coffee and practically bought it on the spot). The sale has been a major confidence boost that couldn’t have come at a better time : ) and I do still have a few paintings waiting in the wings, just in case I need them.
Now if I can just master our new cordless screwdriver…

What a wonderful collection! I wouldn’t be surprised if you sell all of them! P
Thank you! I’m telling myself that I’m going for the experience… selling a few paintings would be nice too though ; )

What a shame. Are you coming down for a holiday?
Yes – we’re heading down shortly when Rod finishes his exams…

Thanks, Poppy. Yes, it has come round quickly. I’ve really enjoyed planning for it. We set up the exhibition tomorrow, then it’s the ‘opening night’ bash and showtime : )
This plan looks good, Anna! Good luck with the show and sales too. :O)
Thank you. I like the plan too — hopefully we’ll be able to make it look a bit like that at the show : )
