With Sir Micheal Parkinson last night at the Mcmillan Music Event in Hampshire 2010
Donating a painting from my first book to raise funds for Mcmillan Cancer Support.
What a week! I faced last Monday with a successful meeting with an art agent.Then came Wednesday which saw the launch of my first book " How to Paint Colour and Light in Watercolour" at the Mall Galleries in London. This was such a memorable day in that I demonstrated during the book signing whilst the SWA Society for Women Artists exhibition was running. I was thrilled to see red dots appear on my paintings in the exhibition but at the same time I know I loved the pieces I submitted and found it hard to part with them. Then on Friday I was at the " Meet the Artists" event in Kent organized by my amazing publishers , Search Press. I never seem to be in one place for too long at the moment!
So by this weekend I was feeling really as though the last few days had surely been a beautiful dream with so many fantastic events happening one after the other. Surely these were enough for one small artist to enjoy in a period of just a few days. But last night was the end to a perfect week by meeting the perfect gentleman. I was invited for press coverage to be with Sir Micheal Parkinson who was the compere for a charity event in aid of Mcmillan Cancer support. I have donated a painting every year for the last few events because in my own way felt I was supporting a charity that does so much for all who are effected by the "word" many of us dread to hear.
My week has been unbelievable and I am hoping to find time to write next week hopefully when I should with any luck be back in my studio rather than racing around to meet wonderful friends,colleagues and associates.
Goodness, I wonder what I will be doing next!
Watch this space and see!
