New 'solo' Exhibition Space



A coffee shop has opened up in our village bang opposite Harry's school!
You can imagine how that pleases a caffeine addict like myself, so yesterday I popped in to introduce myself and ask about all the blank wall space. The owners, Angie and Steve, were just contemplating purchasing a couple of prints for the walls so my timing was perfect and they were thrilled to accept my offer to fill their blank spaces.
This morning I spent a couple of hours with Steve hanging a variety of works from my studio.
I printed price tags this afternoon and popped back to add them to the display when I collected Harry.
I will be refreshing the exhibit regularly but I think we all did very well on such short notice. Sadly, the photographs were taken this morning before the sun broke and before I had my second coffee of the day ...not a good mix!

Anita, Anita, Anita...!!! Whooosh!What an "energy dynamo" you are...coffee or not! Congrats...How fun the exhibit space will be...and it's right "bang opposite" Harry's School! I laughed so hard at that I almost fell off my chair...Love it! So perfectly and imaginatively descriptive!

As ever on the ball! Well done - just as well we are both so outgoing and put ourselves out there. Great opportunity with Christmas coming up too. Love and remember well all the pieces you have hung. Thanks also for sharing your chocolate button story.

Isn't cultural diversity great. Margaret Ann thinks bang opposite is hilarious whereas in the UK it's just a cliche. I love some US phrases and often think they have a particular fresh way with words. Maybe we all do!
Congrats Anita great complementarity between you and the coffee shop.
