The busy season has started. Goodbye to lovely long ‘time-rich’ winters. The exhibitions & workshops begin, & so I put the tent into my car & go off into the outside world. Framing & exhibiting, meeting the masses & selling paintings, teaching, living away from home ‘on tour’….
I’m not doing a lot of exhibitions this year. Partly because of the recession (but mostly because our house needs a new roof!). Speaking to fellow artists here in SW France, most of them aren’t even recouperating the rents on the exhibiting spaces… i.e. better off staying in the atelier & not exhibiting. Mind you, I thought it was going to bad last year but in fact, I sold well.
So if you’re in the Dordogne this summer, come along! I’ll be there in person at Sarlat & Bergerac. Light the camping stove & have a nice cup of tea?
