While we were away on holiday last week I sold 2 paintings off the affordable british art website. The one above " Acacia Sunset" is 5ft wide x 1ft deep... not very good for sending by courier as its very likely to get smashed in half en-route.. The last one this size I sold was going to France...so my ever patient hubby bought wood to make a box for it..It worked well but was expensive to do..£50 just for the wood!  So Bill suggested we deliver the paintings rather than risk sending them. After checking it out on line I was able to find 2 nights B+B in Weston Super Mare, which is nearby the destination of the paintings for about the same as it would cost me to send them so we are having a mini-break in Weston ! I always include a little pressie to say thanks to the purchasers, and you can see the difference in size of those  in the above photo.. The miniatures really do look tiny up against the Acacia Sunset!

Tranquil Evening is also going along to Shepton Mallet.. We are looking forward to meeting Ange on Thursday morning when we drop the paintings off... then we are off to Glastonbury for a meeting with Steven,, so killing 2 birds with one stone..
Then in June we will also be hand delivering 3 paintings--this time to Looe in Cornwall.  Also by coincidence to another Ange !!!  This Ange is a collector of my work, having bought and commissioned quite a few paintings off me in previous years,, We are on holiday in nearby Bude , and it made sense to take the paintings with us as again one of them if a big 3ft x 3ft and its always a bit nerve racking sending them via courier -no matter how well you pack them! It will also be lovely to meet with the lovely lady who has bought so much of my art work!
