An old, sold painting, this morning, of flooded fields. The area behind our town is low lying, reclaimed, marshland and despite the many drainage ditches it can get flooded after torrential rain. So the farmer may be unhappy, but it can give great contrasts in lowlight such as sunrise and sunset.
I’ve been busy setting up an exhibition at my framers and manning a collective exhibition in the town centre. I also took a couple of paintings to the main art gallery which got some funding to stage an exhibition of the architecture and buildings of the town centre – a subject, on which, I have many paintings. I missed the opening as I had already promised to go to a life session that day.
Nothing of mine has been sold at the collective, though a few – and cheaper – paintings are going. I think that this will be my last time in this show after participating for twelve years. The numbers visiting are going down and down. Last Friday I had the lowest visitors for any day I’ve been in attendance. A sign of the times I guess.
