Yesterday I dropped off some pictures at House for an Art Lover in Glasgow for their next exhibition, which opens on Thursday 29th November. The Private View is on Thursday evening and if you’re in Glasgow, it should be worth attending. As well as my pieces, there is work by lots of other artists which looks really interesting.
In some ways it was quite sad dropping off the work as now my mantelpiece looks empty. It’s not until you take the picture away that you realise what an impact it has on the room! Still, it will soon be time to put up the Christmas decorations there instead.
It was all a bit of a busy day yesterday. As well as dropping off the pictures, we went to the Studio, running by the Loch Lomond Quilt Show people to see their first City & Guilds Patchwork and Quilting exhibition. It was very impressive work and as I’m teaching the next C&G course with them which starts in January, it leaves a lot to live up to – which is fantastic. The children liked the quilts, but were even more impressed by the cakes!
