Open Studio the results are in

What a great weekend.  The weather was beautiful so there was a great turn out.  I was soo nervous about spending so much money on new lighting and all the framing.  Not to mention the wine and nibbles.  There were people coming and going all day.  Good musician friends of mine came around 7 and played for the everyone, The wine was flowing the kids were playing with the donkey in the field,  The day turned into a session that went on into the early morning.  And.......I sold FIVE paintings! and got FIVE commissions!  I am sooo delighted.  I will have open studios at least 3 times a year.

Galleries are finding it hard to sell the work they have.  Artist are finding it hard to get into galleries, and with so little exhibition opportunities…..
Artists are doing it for themselves!

OPEN STUDIO 17th April 2010 
Deborah O’Keeffe is opening her studio to the public to see more than 30 newly created work.  Deborah who works in soft pastels created over 30 new painting over the winter.  Now that spring is here she is opening her studio and has turned her home into a gallery space open to the public to see her work.  Pastels are a misunderstood medium which uses pure pigment with a binder to produce vibrant colours.
