Wow, I have to admit even I was surprised to find my last blog was just over 2 years old! As you can probably guess spending time hunched over a hot laptop is not my idea of fun, that coupled with an amazing year for my art has mean this blog has been sorely neglected.
Last July I finally got my act together enough to entry Open Studios which is a part of Frome's Annual Festival. I was stepping into the complete unknown as I opened up not only my studio but the whole downstairs, which had been filled with my paintings. Well the response was far and away beyond my wildest dreams with a massive 30 paintings sold and a 100 visitors.
2016 found me painting 7 days a week as I tried to produce enough work for the event this year. Once again my apprehension was unfounded as I saw numbers increase to 170 visitors and 27 paintings sold.
Encouraged by the response I decided to enter the Mall Galleries open exhibition for Marine artists. I was thrilled to find that my painting Waves (found on page 4 of this site)
has been accepted. Woooo Hoooo.
I realise that my blogging is to say the least sporadic, however I am better with my Alex Howell Art Page on Facebook, so if you would like to visit it an like it you will be keep more up to date. Ax
