Private viewing - Art & Soul Exhibition

After the painting planning and preparation for this show, it was so pleasing  for it to culminate in a very enjoyable evening on Saturday.  We were both pleased to meet many new people as well as catch up with old friends and supporters.  Spending the time at home producing artwork can be quite isolating and it as always exciting to share the results of your efforts with fellow artist and the public.  Our new pieces were well received with many positive comments which is so encouraging.  We both enjoy our art and enjoy sharing it with others which we believe is the most important thing to aim for and is reflected in the work produced.  Painting to sell or what you think will sell is restricting and stifles the creative process.  With the present economic situation, particularly in Spain, it is difficult to achieve sales so it was encouraging to sell one artwork before the show opened and SIX during the evening.  The exhibition is open for the month of June so we look forward to seeing how it goes.

My Blog has been a bit quiet of late as I wanted to keep new pieces for the opening but I will post them over the next few days.

If you are intending to visit the exhibition please note that the museum have changed the evening opening times since the publicity material was printed.  The new times are 5.00pm - 9.00pm.
