Pre-Christmas sales at the NEAC Gallery in Eldon Gardens, Newcastle were my best yet, boosted by the numerous mini and micro-prints on offer, just what I needed after the unnecessary cancelation of my annual Xmas Gift Exhibition at Newcastle City Library with Bob Laine.
Bob discovered it had been cancelled because of ONE overlap day with the previous event, the exhibition space lay empty for the remainder of what would have been our two week show.
Still, every cloud has a silver lining (as they say) and putting my mini/micro prints in NEAC instead proved to be a godsend, selling many more than I could have hoped for at the Library.
We weren't best pleased all the same, but will be returning there in May for our annual Spring Show.
Meantime, like I said, I've been busy, producing new images of a Blue Tits, Coal Tits, Barn Owls and a Chilean Flamingo (yeah I know, hardly a garden bird, but we do have some locally at the Washington WWT.)
I took a few in to NEAC last week to replenish stocks after the busy end of year, still more to go once I restock on frames as well :
|Coal Tit, Barn Owl and Another Blue Tit|
New additions to the collection for 2018
|Six of the Ten framed pictures delivered to NEAC last week.|
Chilean Flamingo (measuring 25x53cms) is new and original for 2018
All the others are prints of old favourites and best-sellers.
That's all for now, gotta get busy :-)
