Hi everyone I have done my first exhibition this past Sunday and it was a great experience and many sales.  For the past few days it has been over 40 degrees celcius and humide even Sunday. :sweat:  :sweat: :sweat:

My exhibition was outdoors at the Art Gallery Linart in Cantley in a nice area, my husband and I were well received by the owners.  Thanks to my wonderfull husband who  has helped me in the setup and he has taken many pictures.  I will share a few with you as soon as it is possible for me to put them on the forum (technical problem for attachements).

Nolan I have sold all my 5 oil cherry paintings they all loved it.    :thankyou: for the tip.  I will certainly make more of oil fruit paintings.  I also have sold my straberries on wood and some of my pastel horse ride and a few watercolours.

Thank you Dennis, Nolan and all my PB friends and my family support  for the encouragement and advice you have given me during this past year and a half it has helped me tremendously in giving me confidence and better myself. :-* :-* :hug: :hug:

I am so happy :cheering: :cheering: :cheering:, I have sold 13 paintings in all, some privately and some at the art Gallery, most of the people were family, some other  people came to look.
