The Private View and Comments!
The Private view was great fun and we went for Curry afterwards with some friends. Saturday was slow due partly to the wonderful Tube company, who would you believe....closed the Tube station down for the WHOLE weekend!!!!Really helping the Community. Thanks guys!!!!!!!!! The weather helped and hindered. The reason being it was very hot and l think people sunbathed and BBQed, rather than treke round hundereds of studio's, which they normally do each year!
I talked to a lot of very nice people and a few l wished l hadn't. For example these two comments were made about my Silk Paintings.
"Oh yes very nice but far too colourful for British people"
and another said about my Art in general..
"They are very different but not sure what to do with them".
So not feeling too good about showing my Art again at the moment..a bit raw!!!! Have to develop a thicker skin!!!!
Then someone else on Saturday said......
"Not too sure on the colour of your dress but l think you are the only one that could wear it. It is unique but then no-one else would properbly want to wear it anyway" and walked off. Am l meant to be flattered or angry or very hurt?
I enjoy creating my Art and l know many people love it but unfortunetly it only take one person to knock your confidence......well does in my case. I have got to get a thicker skin!!!!
