By which, thankfully, I don't mean Christmas (but remember, original artworks make unique gifts!) but the Working Links thepicturepalace live event, for which I shall be up bright and early tomorrow morning. The venue is the Mills Bakery building in Royal William Yard http://bit.ly/egEUl1. Kick off is 10.30 and I'll be around until 3 ish when things wind down. Part of the days events is the Working Links bus tour of Plymouth start up businesses http://www.workinglinks.co.uk/media_centre/latest_news/080411_entrepreneur_bus.aspx so if you're in the city tomorrow look out for it (I shall maintain a tactful silence over the use of the Cameron copyrighted phrase, 'Big Society' in that article).
I'll be showing a number of 'The Demi Paradise' works and will take a strictly limited amount of 7" x 5" prints of some of the completed paintings to hand out to likely looking punters as well as the usual postcards and business cards etc. So, I hope to see you tomorrow, why not make a day of it and look in at Martin Bush's gallery while you're there http://www.martinbush.co.uk/
And finally ... you may remember in the last but one post on this blog that I was nervous about actually getting on and starting the 'Tawny Pipit' painting. Well, 'tis done, dusted and finished and doesn't look at all bad, though I say so myself. In fact it would probably be forming the centrepiece of tomorrow's activities if it weren't for the fact that I've run out acrylic varnish and can't get anymore in time. So for the moment you'll have to make do with it being reproduced here in all its B & W glory, unless that is you come along tomorrow and manage to cadge a print from me (and you'd better be quick, I've only made 10).
Work in progress and other stuff that happens.
