Wooden relief, by Gary White, Llandysul, Wales
It's made with his brand new super clever machine thingy (apparently called a CNC machine), that will carve all sorts of designs and he made it for me! I love it, it's made from tulip wood, which is a bit soft, hence the slightly fluffy edges. Gary said it's a first try and he's going to make me one from hard wood to replace this one, but I will always treasure this. Thanks Gary and Julie, for coming up - why didn't we take any photos of your visit???? We were too busy talking and eating cake! http://www.dhdkitchens.co.uk/ http://www.dollshousedirect.co.uk/
A couple of nights ago I had my 7000th view on this blog! I am ridiculously pleased at this figure: I was aiming at a thousand hits by June, to double my hits from a thousand for the whole of last year so I am on target!
All I need now is to get going and approach some more galleries to get my work seen by more people. I'm not so good at this bit, so watch this space. . .
Two Farewells, far right, sold. I thought I had taken studio shots of all my drawings and it turns out we didn't - another job to do!
I have sold the drawing, Two Farewells to a friend, who is really excited to own it, which really touched me. She has generously promised that I can go and see it and that I can borrow it back if I have any exhibitions in the future.
Winter, packed up, ready for collection.
