Over 200 people attended the Private View, including the Mayor, Councillor Paul Saunders. Sales were brisk, despite the economic downturn, and at the end of the exhibition, a healthy profit was achieved.
As usual, the public was asked to vote for their favourite painting and I am delighted to say that one of mine was selected. Titled "Ill Fares the Land", it is my commentary on modern day society. It is not a comforting painting to look at. Some people found it disturbing others said it was thought provoking.
In my next blog, I will talk about the ideas behind it and how it was constructed.
