It's been a long time.........

I cannot believe how long it's been since my last blog post. Such a lot has been happening and just needed time to recharge - I promise I haven't been slacking!!

The Coast Art Festival turned out to be such a great show - had lots of sales and even picked up a commission, which I'm currently working on. The commission is for someone working for a Norwegian Oil Company in Aberdeen. She is a buyer for their company art club. Employees join the art club and pay a monthly fee - at the end of the year, the company matches the money and the buyers go out and buy art for all the members, buying from a list they have devised. The members then have a good value piece of art 1/2 price (as the company pays for half) - What a great idea. Why don't more companies take on this idea. It would certainly keep us artists in work!!

I'm also currently working on some new pieces for an exhibition, will update later once I know if I have been chosen.

I also have a busy summer coming up with some new events - will keep you posted as and when they are happening.

I will try and keep my blog more up to date now that I have recharged my batteries a little.

Good to have you back!!
The company art scheme sounds absolutely fantastic! What a brilliant idea - so many people benefit from it.
