The cars have been unloaded, the cards and prints tidied away, the paintings rehung (no not yet...give me time!) the table coverings folded up for another year. Patchings Festival is over and we had a good four days. Seeing old artist friends and comparing notes about the year that's passed and prospects for the year to come. Glowing from lovely compliments from the visitors but secretly puzzled as to why all my paintings were not immediately snapped up. Hmmmmm! But I enjoyed being able to paint during the four days and share tips...people stand for ages looking on and gleaning as much info. as they can. Here is one of the demos I did and was quite pleased with.
