“I invented a dot”.

You meet some funny people in an art gallery. Especially if you are exhibiting and looking after the place which is my present function. It’s like opening a shop in many ways. No one comes for ages then there are loads of people and then none again. Such was today and in came this chap who told me he’s been a picture restorer. He was naturally curious about how I work, so I told him, for those wanting to know more here then go here: Three stages of artwork, is it ever finished? No.

He then proceeds to tell me all about his work and how difficult it is to restore chalk drawings, “they turn to dust, which is what they were in the first place”. He then goes on to tell me about a printing process that he and others invented which culminates in him saying: ” I invented a dot”

Who am I to argue with that. He was fascinating to meet and it’s the first time I’ve ever met anyone who’s invented a dot. “Jolly good egg” as we say over here.

I’m looking forward to tomorrow’s collection of people.

These chaps above have all gone to new homes as well as the finished version of the one below. In many ways I prefer the one below to the final. I’m sure they’ve all gone to good homes. The bike drawing has been sold for charity, so I am particularly pleased about that. It was bought by a chap who’s friend is greatly into motorbikes. The charity that will benefit is Headway. This one’s for charity

Hoping for a fine day today so that I can find new homes for some of the others, but it’s been a good week anyway.

Interestingly, the drawing that has had the most reaction is the one on the poster below and still no one mentions the bear,like it’s normal to have a stuffed bear in the loft.

A quick tour of the exhibition.
