Branching out.

Having tried another craft fair last month, we've decided they're just not worth the trouble. After organising a baby sitter, travelling to the venue, setting up etc we then spent several hours sat in a school hall waiting for someone to buy our work. It was a complete waste of time - virtually no visitors, and those that did come in wanted something for nothing. So, following this, Jen visited a local gallery / shop and asked if we could sell our pots via them for a small commission. they agreed and so far we've sold far more stock than any of the craft fairs we've been to. here's the link:

Anyway, this isn't what the title of this post refers to! I've just bought myself a French easel via ebay. Pictured. I can't wait for it's arrival. I've been thinking about what to paint, when to paint etc. I like the idea of plein air painting as well as studio painting, but practicalities might dictate when I can paint. So, watch this space! I've uploaded some (very old) paintings that I did. the new stuff will be very different - wait and see!
