The "Private View" of my exhibition was a great success last night. It was lovely to see old friends and great to see those red dots appearing on the works as they sold. It was a frantic day - I was actually half an hour late for my own show as I was still sorting out the unframed engravings.

When I arrived at the gallery, I could finally relax. The exhibition was looking good and I tried to find the time to chat to everyone. A is back on his feet again and took photographs for me. At the end of the evening, I took the opportunity to take my own photographs of the empty rooms. Only then did I realise how hungry I was and so J and I walked the short distance to find a restaurant that was still serving food.

You can see more photographs on my new website:

Find "Latest News" on the drop-down menu from the "Home" tab. Yes - its finally online. No images of engravings in the gallery yet but they will follow shortly.

Andy, congratulations on a successful opening! The gallery looks like a nice place - those walls show off your prints really well. Wishing you continued success! Annie

Many thanks, Annie. I was demonstrating at the gallery this afternoon and there was a lot of interest in what I was doing. The gallery is absolutely perfect. I am glad that someone had the vision to take an old derelict building and bring it back to life. We have sold very nearly half the work in the first two days. With a month still to go, we are aiming for a sellout!

Your work is wonderful...I have no doubt it will be a sell out!
Congratulations on retirement and your new job as a full time artist!
Best to you,
