The morning after ....

Posted by Lidya Endzo Kun iLLa
The dust has now settled and I think I can safely say our group have had another successful Easter exhibition, with a few paintings sold, and funds raised (about £100 of which will go on overheads). We’ll need to spend a bit on replacing some of our wooden exhibition signs that we put around the town, as they tend to get vandalised. Here I am back home, and I have just ordered some new oil pastels, to use in my next project.

There were plenty of people I knew at the show, including our local author Beth Winchcombe and her husband Geoff, fellow trade fair veterans. When I arrived to help out on the Sunday, I was pleased to see Elizabeth had felt well enough to come along for a bit. She had picked up a bug on holiday recently, and was still recovering, so I’d taken along her paintings to display for her. There was aIso someone called Lyn, whom I met recently. She has just started making very pretty handmade cards and wants to sell them. She gave me a DVD of her work, which I had a look at that evening and was impressed by.

Meanwhile, I have had the annual “Best in Show” report through from Kevin. Every year, people visiting the exhibition are given a small form to vote for what they think is the best picture. This year Sue swept the board with her painting “My Turn Next” (SC29 on the Artists of Derbyshire website) polling 19 votes. Her husband is a keen ornithologist and photographer, so she always has plenty of bird photographs to drawn on. I had one for “Magna”, a surprise choice from my son - his inherent good sense of taste seems to have overcome the fact that he didn’t like the place (see the posting about Magna at the end of February).

I will be uploading some photos of the event onto my Facebook page soon. Although I am on Picasa, I would actually have to e-mail them from there to readers. I hope Facebook is an easier option for most of you. As well as my own “Julie Baugh” page, I have also created a fan page called “Artists of Derbyshire”, and am always grateful for new fans.
Next week, I plan to start my next “industrial” picture – this time on a black background.

Bye for now
