The first day...
I opened my studio at 10 a.m. This was me at 11 a.m.
Just after 11 people began to arrive. And never stopped. I had all on to eat at - around - lunchtime.
I had some lovely shortbread and sweeties for the visitors.
Although looking at some fellow entrants facebook pages it was more a bake off than an artists studio.
After 10 years running a bed and breakfast, once retired, I gave up baking for ever,
The delicious shortbread was donated by a lovely friend. The sweeties came from Tescos.
For once I was not annoyed they were bringing in Christmas stuff in in September. Those large tins for a fiver that we end up eating far too much of.
I much prefer painting. And the idea is to meet the artist. So this one managed to do a bit.
Back at the drawing board tomorrow and serving coffee and teas and smiling and chatting, most of which I dont find difficult.
