All Pretty Maids in a Row

Over the past few weeks I've been getting ready to host an Open Day which is taking place on Thursday. A friend and I have decided to put our talents to use and start a little venture. She makes jewellery and has wonderful contacts for hand made frames, sterling silver jewellery and dresses. I have mountains of paintings and have also started a small handmade jewellery line. On Thursday we have invited a few other girls to sell wonderful goodies with us and will bring along their gorgeous pewter home-wear, sea-grass mats, throws handbags and designer clothing. I hope it'll be a success as I enjoy ladies events like this where you can breeze around with a cup of tea or champagne and enjoy a lovely afternoon in a relaxed market feel environment. At the moment I need to work out prices for my art which is not easy as I have no idea how to charge. But I'm sure I'll work out a formula which will be appealing to the ladies.

In between pricing and labelling my jewellery the other night, I painted a painting of an idea I've had in my head for a while and thought I'd get stuck in and paint it. Not too sure that it's exactly what I wanted to achieve but, but I thought I'd post it anyhow for you to see and comment on. I was hoping for messier loose strokes, but the style of art I do - wasn't able to achieve it!
This might just be a good exercise for another.

Have a great week every one.
