I think I was there!

I recently exhibited at an art fair in Chelsea, London, and the promotional video has now been uploaded. A little word of warning it does contain several seconds of extremely fast cut rate – I’m guessing something to do with fitting images to the soundtrack. Along with myself there were over 50 artists exhibiting and this video certainly shows how busy and crowded the event was showcasing fine art, drawing, photography, sculpture, ceramics, textiles and jewellery.

Sadly, the most outstanding, beautiful pieces are not shown at all – that was a range of glorious blue ceramics by a woman from the west country. And, that isn’t just my opinion. It was the buzz from quite a few of my fellow talented and knowledgeable exhibitors. Looks like the ‘craft’ part didn’t make the cut.

 

To review or not to review

PW Pink HangerI’m sure like me if you do a little shopping on the Internet from time to time you are requested to add a review for a product or a service you’ve recently purchased. I have mixed views about this reviewing process. On the one side I definitely read what past customers say if I’m wavering on whether or not to buy one brand over another especially if it’s an important purchase. And, on the other side when I get a reminder to offer a review myself I think have I the time, can I be bothered?

As I type this I’m having fun working my way round an intermittent fault on my serenely antique monitor. I’m finding photoshopping any image at the moment has become a daily trial, me against the machine – unbelievable. Time, I think, to replace the failing device.

My old 3rd-hand monitor. Previously used by my daughter and before that originally bought and used by my father.

So, this is a thank you to all those folks who take the time to type out a review on a product or service – especially those people who’ve had a monitor for more than a year and have updated the world on how it’s still working or not (very useful information)!

And finally, as somebody who sells her work online a thank you to the lady who took the time to write this generous review for one of my scarves.
