Houghton on the hill Christmas craft fair

Hi everyone would just like to let you know how I got on at the Houghton craft fair. Things started off well as the sun was out and the weather looked good. Where I was situated in the room the sun was beaming down we even had to draw the blinds. Sadly that didn’t last for that long half way through the day it really through it down. It didn’t dampen our spirits though. Both me and other stall holders had a great day and I got my brushes out and started to paint. It was a good day no matter what the weather did.

Houghton craft fair is one that I always like to go to. Its a great Christmas fair with lots of different crafts to see. We used to live there so it was nice to see people that we knew years ago. Its always nice to catch up and talk.

I managed to paint two paintings a Landscape in the morning. I have done this one before so that made it easier for me. The afternoon I painted a poppy

The sun came out again in the afternoon it was so busy too. I managed to sell one of the paintings of the easel still wet. Also I got a commission for another Poppy painting. I really enjoyed my day at the craft fair and will return next year.

My next Christmas fair is in South Wigston on December 2nd which is a Saturday.

if you would like to learn this way of painting please give me a call or visit my website.

thanks for your time
