Open Studio Day: paintings and photography

Apologies folks! (again!) I have been as busy as a bee lately, and seem to be spending more time over on Facebook than here. Ooops! I will try to remedy that! Anyway, it`s still not too late to get a unique Mother`s Day gift.  This Saturday, 29th March, from 10am to 6pm, I am having another Open Studio Day, but this time my husband (HF Photography) is joining forces. For those of you who live in the Ballymena Borough area,  you should have already gotten a brochure in the post for Ballymena`s Creative Citizens project, launched today at The Braid Museum. Our event is just one of a string of events on offer, both through the council and independently - the latter known as "fringe" events.  I will have my artwork, including new pieces, (some of those below), giclée prints and art cards for sale. There will also be a few pieces of older work at a discounted price. (Plus, I should be mulling around in a dirty apron, since I will be painting a work in progress, too.)

 Or, you can choose from a range of landscape photographs by HF Photography: A3 mounted landscape prints are £50. Hernán is also offering discounted portrait photo shoots:  a one hour studio session including one A4 print for just £50! If you are interested in booking a slot, phone 07907807074 or 07754360251.

Please come and have a browse if you`re out and about in the area, and enjoy a cup of tea and coffee, (with a little naughty bun on the side ;)

  3. thank you girls! I am finding it a challenge keeping up the artwork production alongside the necessary marketing on social media sites. But I suppose that is true for most of us!!

  4. Pretty cool.
