November 2014 has definitely been my busiest month ever. I didn't just double, but  triple booked myself by mistake during the first half of the month.

I had a solo show at Leabrooks Gallery which ran for two weeks, a solo show at Cromford Gallery which ran throughout the whole of November and during this I went to Windsor Art Fair for the weekend of 8th and 9th November. Think I need to employ a PA or a diary secretary to avoid making such a mistake again.

 When the page likes reached 2000 on my Facebook page, I  made a prize draw and the winner could commission me to paint a favourite place. The Month started with me presenting Myrilla, who commissioned me to paint a sun set over Lake Windermere.

This was the third year I have exhibited at Windsor, and once again I enjoyed meeting other artists and lots of people visting the Fair. Both Windsor and Reading Art Fairs  are extremely well organised  by Sarah McAllister and Deborah James and the publicity generates lots of business.

 The Last three weekends of the month were taken up by workshops with the lovely Bollington Art Group followed by 2 weekends with the very talented and friendly Thringston Art Group.
I am running a series of workshops in 2015 so look at my website, for dates and further details.

15 paintings and 150 calendars  found a new home this month.

 I have been very pleased with sales this month, having sold 15 paintings which all found new homes around the country. One also went to Sweden and another to the US.

This year was the first time I have produced a calendar, so I was very pleased with sales. Its very difficult to know how many to have printed so I think my guestimate of 150 was just right.
