Happy happy happy! A good week down at Samuel Studios! I’ve been invited to speak at the MOROL (Institute of Welsh Maritime Historical Studies) Conference in November! What an honour! website: http://www.morol.eu
Also sold another 2 paintings, one on my bird theme, one on my sailing ship theme. I think I must be schizophrenic – I know professionally artists develop one distinctive style which gets them recognition, but I find that limiting, and at the moment I’m developing in two distinct directions, which is why I went for a calligraphy lesson with the brilliant Janet Smith at Oakleaf Studios, Anglesea this week. The two paintings I sold reflect these two quite distinct and equally satisfying directions. I wonder what other artists feel about this?
Oh and I sold two books too!
Ironically only a week or two ago I was feeling a complete failure and quite ready to give everything up, both painting and research!
