The Other Art Fair - Bristol

July 4, 2018

I've been lucky enough to be accepted to show at The Other Art Fair in Bristol. It's a little out of my comfort zone doing something like this, but I felt the time was right. However, now it is getting closer to the event I am feeling a little scared. But what is it exactly that I find so daunting? Being judged? No-one liking my work? Me standing alone as everyone else has a buzz around their stand? Having to talk about my work to people I don't know? Just having to talk about my work? Yes, all of that and so much more.


I always think that I am the best critic for my work, and I can be quite harsh. Although at the moment I am feeling pretty good about my last few paintings, hence the show. However, when other people, strangers mostly, view my efforts I want them to like what I have done, I do want to sell something, but it's not that selling my work is the be all and end all. However, if I do manage to sell something it means I can continue to paint. And perhaps more importantly I would feel validated, that I am on the right track.


It makes me feel quite sad when I think about the hundreds of wonderful and some famous artists that never really sold anything but continued to paint. I wouldn't know how to live without painting. 


Please come and see me at:
