Windsor Art Fair - done and dusted

Windsor Contemporary Art Fair is done and dusted and we are back home again. This time we combined the trip to the Windsor Art Fair with a trip up to Nottingham for a family birthday celebration. The trip over was pretty unremarkable with the weather smiling on us all the way. The only bugbear was the crossing at Dartford which took ages with no obvious reason for the delay.

At Windsor, set up was Friday morning at the Racecourse. There is always a sense of excitement and anticipation when entering the building for the first time at an art fair and seeing all the blank stands, knowing that in a few hours beautiful original art will be on display.

Friday was private view time with lots of art lovers viewing the art with a glass of wine in their hands. The atmosphere was buzzing, and I was pleasantly surprised when the purchaser of my Prince's Trust painting introduced herself. This was closely followed by two collectors who were in the queue wanting to buy the Prince's Trust painting but just missed out. They both purchased one of my small mounted paintings. A big thank you to all three.

Saturday was also busy despite there being tremendous storms and I gained some new collectors. It is always satisfying to know that my art will be loved in its' new home.

Unfortunately, Sunday was a damp squid (literally) with no one really interested in purchasing, although I had a couple of nice conversations with people and interest from an interior designer.

All over for now, but already anticipating the Surrey Contemporary Art Fair next March
