    Thanks!

    its not the best of venues,
    its in a small hall south of london (suburbia)
    but its a start to (hopefully !!!! ) build my confidence

    and motivation – well I’ve been painting for years and years and have begun to run out of space so had to do something,

    and if I dot sell any everyones getting a picture for their birthday and christmas :laugh_at:

    and a party in north london sat night to either cellebrate or drown my sorrows as spent money on the table / frames etc :bounce_fl

    good luck, hope all goes well. it can be very daunting when confronted with the public like that. what mediums do use mainly?

    usually acrylic, with texture paste and sand either on canvas or paper and then framed

    (and sometimes paper with either print or sort of archetecture drafts and then paint over it)

    I really am shitting it (not the most confident of people)

    so thanks for your wishes :love:

    They are actually pretty bloody good. I’d be suprised if they didn’t sell. Actually, how much you selling them for, if you don’t mind me asking?

    cheers guys, I really do appreciate the support :love:
    have never sold anything before so its quite daunting

    I’m not really sure about the prices so presently I’m thinking of them ranging from 4×6 ยฃ5 to A4 ยฃ25 – but I may add a few extra quid onto them if everyone else selling for loads more – I dunno – I’m a bit stuck
    (but I’m also bearing in mind that this is a hobby and not a ‘job’ )

    I got the frames really really cheap ยฃ1.00 to 4.00 – so dont want to take the piss but I need to make approx ยฃ70 to break even – frames / stall etc, but will be happy just to sell a few ๐Ÿ˜‰

    ah, cheers hon :group_hug

    but I asked my mate round for some moral support this arvo ( and a nice cuppa)
    and he came up with all this wanky ‘artsy’ inspiration bollox (that I just really cant say – am known for being honest and not talking utter shit )

    and named them all and as he liked that one I told him he can have it but he told me to try and sell it – but I’m thinking of leaving it out as he’d appreciate it more

    (and he’s a loyal getting fucked up partner so thats what really counts……. PS I’m quite pissed by now )

    Good luck ๐Ÿ™‚

    I certainly see the bottom right hand one selling and the two ones based on yellow/gold/umber (probably got the colour names all wrong but I expect you will work out which ones I mean)

    I reckon even if they don’t sell in the capital (the problem there is more the competition and the “nathan barley” factor) you could probably sell them to yuppies round here particularly 40-somethings “Londonistan refugees” of which there are many

    should get Biotech and Titch to be your agents, as they live not too far away from where all the Londoners try to escape to during summer Southwold etc) ๐Ÿ˜‰ also in woodbridge/fram/sax nearer where I live they go for those sort of things.

    Even with the recession I think paintings like that could sell as you’re not asking for mega prices but people still want them for their houses and businesses (way better than those awful motivational pictures)
