Arts Hut is closed and I have a sore throat caused by sitting outside in the rain. Yesterday I started my new work routine. I approached two Galleries to exhibit and received positive replies from both. I also wrote to two shops in Rye to see if they would like to stock my greeting cards and posted 5 prints and 15 greeting cards to my aunt in Silchester for her coffee morning. We had one customer as the front door was unlocked, plus our neighbour arrived with a ladder, cutter and set to work on our hedge. This week I am finishing paintings of Rye Harbour for Avocet Gallery and paintings of Dungeness for my final open studio which starts on September 9th.
