Close To Home - Update
2 Pond Close, Wimblington
Today was spent signing and mounting the 27 sketches from my 'Close to Home' project ready for the Dickensian Market tomorrow.
Both, the Cambs Times and The Fenland Citizen newspapers have been kind enough to spotlight me and the project this week and response has been very pleasing already.
On Thursday evening the Local Studies Librarian contacted me wishing to place an bulk order of my book to be placed in our local libraries as a reference and I have already been contacted by a few home owners asking me to 'hold' the sketch of their home until they arrive at the market.
The weather forecast seems ok, which is a blessing since I discovered the market is not in the village hall but right in the centre of Benwick high street.
I have my mounted sketches, my book, several other pieces of work in a browser, a couple of canvas and framed pieces, a basic tool kit, my trusty chair, my faithful boots, numerous layers of clothing and a sketchbook all packed and raring to go.
I will, of course, update you all on my return.
