We did very well at the Southport Art show. Not only did we sale more art than any previous show, but I was commissioned to do an oil painting of a beautiful bed and breakfast in Southport. I was also asked if I would be interested in representation by a gallery (I’m not, but it’s nice to be asked from time to time). It was a joy to have so many people identifying the boats in my painting and listening to their sea-faring stories. This was the best show that I’ve had to date and I was on cloud nine.
