Thank you to everyone who was able to visit the exhibition last weekend, it continues for a month and can be viewed by appointment only.
It was an extremely pleasant and rewarding event. Thank you to Claire Rudin who I exhibited with, her Batiks were brilliant, mostly flowers in vibrant colours, some of these reminded me of Claude Monet's impressionist paintings. Julie and Andrew the owners of Make Gallery were also fantastic hosts and very helpful, they were both very relaxed, this helped calm me down a bit as I found it all a bit daunting. The comments by those who attended were positive and now I have to believe that David does not say that my work is "good" because he has to (smile).
It was really lovely to see many faces I knew from my stint teaching at Kings College School. It was also wonderful to have family and close friends who came along at short notice.
I know that I am not unlike many other artist when I say that I am my own worst critic but with that in mind, I know that my next exhibition and my subsequent work will be of an even higher standard. as I am constantly striving to be the best that I can be in all aspects of my life. I still have a long way to go.
