 :thankyou:Teresa and Bill, I am happy toinspire. Teresa I always stand when, I work as my bench is at a comfotable hight to work at. I have done this ever since Ifound out that sitting to work is as bad for you as smoking is. I get a lot of breaks as people come in to see my work. I do not always stop it depends on how interesting I find the people. I have had my best week this week, I have made a sale on every day I was open. That is a first for me. Today I got a real buzz. A couple that came in a month ago came back to invite me as a guest artist at their art association art workshop day to do demonstrations with my iron and wax and sell my work while I am there as well as getting paid to be there. They are also wanting me to run actual workshops in the future at their centre. As it is out of town for me they will do all the advertising to fill the sessions.

This is a commision piece for the family that owns the gallery building. They will keep the painting in the gallery and do a print for the grandparents.

Some more news.
We have won a council award for the Change Of Use In A Herritage Building.
I have also just had my first major breakthrough. My best weekend yet. I sold two of my major paintings face to face. I was really thrilled to close the deals.

How clever to burn its own frame, Zilpa.

What a treasure for this family.

 :thankyou: Mea, Patricia and Val. I have also registered for the South Australian Living Artist Festival. I am looking forward to getting the posters for that one. It runs for the whole month of August 7 days a week. I think I may take a holiday after that stint. :2funny: :2funny: :2funny:

Val I am extremely lucky to have a very supportive partner, who lives in the unit next door. He cooks all the meals so that I can come home and chill. He also said that during SALA if I need a break he would come and sit for me. What more can a girl ask for?

That's brilliant Zilpa, but then I wouldn't expect less for our shooting star artist!  ;) Extra hugs to your wonderful partner for all the care and support he bestows upon you. Let him know how proud we all are of our Zilpa.  :hug:
