In many ways it's all go this week.
The New York Affordable Art Fair opened yesterday. My first show with Affordable Art NYC was meant to be in spring 2020, so you can imagine how well that went. My poor gallery spent a fortune shipping the work only for it to end up stranded in a container in NYC for months. I have some work in Washington DC and in Boston, but New York seems impossibly glamorous to me, all the more since I have never been.
Very much on this side of the pond, I have a new piece in Herne Bay at Beach Creative this week. My studio is upstairs at Beech Creative, so it's lovely to represent! I am invigilating tomorrow afternoon (Friday) if anyone is about.
I am trying very hard to get a collection together for Spring shows. Two big ones are basically ready and several more are in the works, I am attempting to be more ambititious with size and complexity, but this does mean things are taking a lot longer. Having done quite a lot of teaching last term, I am only now able to fully focus on painting. I see some long hours at the studio over the next month. I actually like doing long focused hours and am yet to get bored, but I feel bad for the sake of the family, (said every mother ever).
