I was so delighted to receive a phone call today to say that I had sold my first two pieces through the new gallery at Myrtleford, Victoria after it being open only a few months. My charcoal drawing of defiant mother elephant called 'Defender' and a small colour pencil drawing of an Eastern Spinebill sitting on a blossom branch called 'Pretty amongst Pink' have both found new homes. It takes time and patience to begin a new business and I have a feeling that once the word spreads further afield that this gallery will do very well as it carries a lovely selection of realistic art.
At the end of November I taught a coloured pencil workshop at the gallery which was well attended by a group of enthusiastic participants and a fun weekend was had by all. This was the first of many workshops that will be held by me and other artists at the gallery in the future.
