Posters and Preparations

Preparations for Herts Open Studios are now in full swing, with participating artists up to their ears in brochures, mail-outs, leaflets and the other publicity-related and admin stuff which is essential to publicise the event.  Tomorrow we're spending most of the day at the Farmers' Market in Harpenden to promote the Harpenden artists taking part.  Paintings are about to go up in some local shop windows and in Wesley's, the Methodist Church café in the High Street - it's all go!!

All this is intended to generate interest, of course, and with this in mind I've reorganised my Pro Gallery on Photobox in an attempt to make it more user-friendly.  I haven't introduced a lot of new photos this year, but my range of Pro Posters with A4 images on an A3 backbround has been expanded to include some new images, including a couple of experimental layouts of lavender in flower pots.  I had great fun playing with these, and who knows?  somebody might like them!

Full details of the exhibition at Artscape, in which I'm showing various pieces along with four other local artists, can be found here.  For general information about Herts Open Studios click here.

  1. The sunset picture is glorious and the lavender pictures are really attractive; I don't tend to be too keen on things that seem to be to be straining to be excessively 'arty' and it strikes me that these get the balance just right. Please experiment some more!
