Yesterday....

So, what was I up to yesterday that meant I couldn't concentrate the day before? I went to London to visit the Osborne Studio Gallery where I had set up a meeting with the owner to show him some of my work in the hope they might be interested in taking some of my paintings to sell. He had seen some of my images that I had sent via email and was still interested enough to see them in person so we drove all the way to London yesterday, paintings at the ready. Unfortunately, however, the gallery owner had completely forgotten about the meeting and gone off to do a valuation!!!! Luckily his partner at the gallery was able to have a look at my paintings and kept a couple, Waiting and Denman & Kauto Star, to show the owner when he got back. I'm not sure if they'll want to keep the paintings or will be able to sell them but to even get such a gallery interested in viewing my paintings in person was fantastic! It's also EXTREMELY hard finding galleries interested in equestrian art but this has given me the courage to continue my search, although I might stick a bit closer to home next time!!!
