It’s Christmas time again . . .
It’s that time of year again and what a year it has been with plenty of art exhibitions and art shows (and lots of other events of course) moved on-line or cancelled or being held with social distancing and mask-wearing now almost the norm throughout the country. This hasn’t stopped the purchasing of art with many artists and galleries reporting record sales during these trying times. The November Arts Trail on the Kapiti Coast was one of these successes – with me painting a mini-collection of tiny canvases for two weekends (in the window of Artel Gallery) and chatting to Trail visitors while selling some of the larger ones being exhibited on the adjacent walls. Conversations were somewhat muffled and I wasn’t wearing my usual bandana either!
Now finished and framed the minis have found their way into some of the other galleries I am represented by. Now 2022 beckons with several art shows and a couple of solo exhibitions being planned with fingers crossed these won’t be cancelled or postponed. With a number of larger commissions also yet to be completed this is going to add up to a very busy time painting over the next twelve months. So here is a very Happy New Year to me and mine and a very Happy New Year to you and yours!!
