The Riverside Festival in Leicester this year was so much fun. It’s the sort of place where I can meet fans of my work, new friends and interesting people from all walks of life all whilst enjoying music, good company and tasty food.
The sun was out on Saturday and beaming hot, luckily I grabbed a spot under some trees for shade. Of course, there can’t be a festival without a little rain and on Sunday the showers arrived so the art was covered in clear plastic sheets but the rain didn’t last long and the sun came back around.
I sold two paintings, one painting that hadn’t even appeared on my website yet (Break all the Rules, pictured above) to a lovely man named Peter who bought it as a gift for his daughter. The second was my Trying to Sleep/Live painting that I sold to a man named Gareth who really liked the story behind my paintings. I really enjoyed talking about my work as I don’t always get the opportunity to talk about them much so the conversations I had at the festival really gave me a sense of freedom and I was happy they were so well received.
Thanks to all who stopped by to talk and view my work and thanks to those that spend their hard earned cash on my paintings, it means a lot to me. Well, back to painting now for my next outing/show, what will I produce next I wonder ;-)
