Preview of Gallery in the Square, Usk, Wales

Last week was very busy! But all good. I travelled down to Wales the Wednesday before the opening to deliver 15 paintings to David. The journey was nice and traffic free.....which can't be said for Fridays journey back down for the Preview Evening! I left at 2.30pm and got to the gallery at 6pm, just in time!
I was greeted by David, the other two lovely artists joining me in the show, a press photographer and the Mayor of Usk!
The evening was wonderful. I had a fantastic response from the invited guests, especially for my Fractured work, which pleased me no end! They all wanted to know the technique and development of the pieces and seemed very intrigued.
I was fortunate enough to meet a couple who were just about to purchase one of the Fractured paintings. We discussed it in finer detail, and then they went ahead and bought it. There's nothing like seeing a red dot on the ticket under the painting!
I left the gallery just after 8 and had a great journey back home.....to collapse!
The exhibition is on for 6 weeks, and I left another couple pondering over another piece. I hope they go for it!

More work in the gallery.

This is the painting that sold. 'In Flight'.
