Today I set up my exhibition for the 3rd year running at the 3 Harbours Art Festival.
It didn't take too long as I only had a few paintings with me that I was keen to show. Some had been at the previous years exhibitions.
They all fitted nicely on the single wall that I had.
I've got one of my hare watercolours in the Greens and Blues gallery in North Berwick at the moment so I took all my other hare paintings as well as a large one of the Bass Rock with North Berwick Harbour and a smaller one of a mother Wild Boar and her 3 Piglets to put up.
It may be because it has undergone a sea-change into something richer (but not stranger) ....
.. from this bright and bitty watercolour to a more scratchy and free flowing darker hare.
To me art is always changeable if it does not initially satisfy and I make sure to listen to myself and not to be afraid to make those changes - even it took a year to make them! The essence of your original painting will always be there if the eyes are just right, they are the soul, after all.
Arabella was impressed by this sea-change and decided to try out a sea-change herself as a fluffy-faced, short-eared cat until I told her that cat's aren't vegans and don't like curly kale!
Do stop by to see my exhibition if you have time.
It's on this Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th May and then next week Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th June at VENUE 54 which is in Cockenzie House on 22 Edinburgh Road.
It's a very big old building set back behind a big wall in gardens and I'm in the West side conservatory with 3 other artists. The front and North Gate will be open and sign posted.
(I was in venue 56, a hairdressers, but that doesn't bide too well with watercolours, so thanks to Yvonne for changing my venue at short notice!).
