The Clevedon Tides Festival was fun, even though I didn’t see much beyond the inside of the beer tent (where my stand was), but people came to see me. Got to catch up with several fellow swimmers. I never got to swim in the lake though, which was a shame!
I printed lots of greetings cards from the cat-of-the-day drawings (swimming and cats, but no swimming cats), and these went down very well and will also be appearing in my Etsy shop very soon. There are a few cat ones here but lots more to come, including about 15 different swimming drawings too. Predictably, the drawing that I almost didn’t bother to print because nobody would buy it sold out!
Now it’s on to Somerset Arts Weeks (3rd – 18th Oct), where my exhibition will be largely about the swimming pictures, which went down well at Clevedon. I will have some of my ‘usual’ artwork on display too, but not the very newest ‘Westcountry Bestiary’ pieces – they are too new to be given second place and I intend to expand the group over then next months and show them next Summer at Ilminster, unless another opportunity for them presents itself.
Your stand looks great! Well done! Hope you got a lot of good sales.
Thank you! Not bad – goodly amount of cards and calendars and a print. And some interest in the big print from two or three people who said that it summed up Clevedon for them 🙂
