Despite the wintery weather in Scotland last week, we had a very successful open studios in the upstairs gallery room at the Westerton Hotel! Lots of interesting visitors and feedback. My blank greetings cards sold so well that I am now going to concentrate on marketing them further afield and also in the process of setting up a new online shop. The good thing about Open Studios events is the feedback and making contacts. Another positive is meeting other artists at their open studios. Every year I am astonished at the quality and the low prices that people charge. Its a big opportunity to sell work with out the usual 100% commission added by shops and galleries.
Also, I have three new commissions this week as a direct result. There's a little part of me wishes it could be open studios everyday! By the way, I have a page on this website where you can buy my cards - you don't need a paypal account - any queries please fill in the contact form. Cards online: /cards.html
