Open Doors Studio Art Trail

Last weekend was my first exposure to an Open Doors Trail. I had underestimated quite how exhausting it was going to be, and we have to do it all again next weekend! It's good to talk to people about what you are doing and I guess they wouldn't have picked you out if they weren't interested. We spent all last week turning my dining room into a 'gallery'-looked pretty good-might even leave it for a while! One disadvantage for the participants is that they can't easily get round to see their fellow 'artists' work.
Sold quite a bit which is always gratifying, and feel inspired to continue by other people's enthusiasm.
If you get the chance to join in something similar in your area I would recommend you have a go, but save the wine for when evryone has gone-you will need it!
