South Wigston Christmas Capers
Christmas Candles Demo.
Hello to you all, firstly let me wish you all a very happy and healthy new year, lets hope its a good one.
I always think, new year is a new start a new beginning. I look forward to painting who knows where I will be, and what I will be doing. All I no is I am looking forward to it.
I would just like to start by letting you know about the South Wigston Christmas Capers I attended during December. Here I demonstrated a painting called Christmas Candles.
What a good day it was. After parking and unloading the car which was a bit of a task and then setting up. The show began at 2 o’clock so I had to get a move on.
There were smells of Christmas and the sound of Carols. There were children running round all so very excited. It was really lovely such a great atmosphere.
Christmas capers was well supported with, lots of people all enjoying the various events that were laid on. There were of course the usual food stands selling Christmas food as well as other food. Not forgetting the fun fair for the children and of course you know who was there. Yes you guessed it Santa himself.
There were birds of prey and penquins and of course all the different craft stalls. Of which mine was there among the many others.
Then I thought I would paint a Poinsettia it was Christmas after all. So I started to draw out very roughly where I wanted to put my Poinsettias.Then I thought I might add a candle or two and even a Christmas bauble. It was a while before I could really get on with the painting as I had a lot of interest in what I was doing. At last the drawing was done all be it very roughly then I got on with Painting. There was lots of interest in my workshops. I sold a painting which just topped it for me.
Christmas capers is certainly one I will go to next year, It seemed to be like the old Christmas markets of old.
