Scotland, Open Day & New Workshops
I'm all refreshed from a wonderful week away in Scotland. We stayed 2 nights with my good friend Julia & her family in a quiet village in Perthshire. She has a beautiful bungalow with stunning views. Also, she kindly booked Darrell into a spot of salmon fishing on the River Tay. He had a wonderful afternoon and also got sunburnt!!
We then moved on to a campsite at Killin with our caravan. Lots of walks, pubs, barbeques, and alcohol were had. Toby Art Dog had the best time ever. He enjoyed all the walks and fuss he received from fellow dog lovers.
We're home now and I'm busy prepping for Saturday's Open Day.
The garden is still not finished.... aaaaagh!!! The slabs need grouting, this is a big job. I have been promised, again, that it will be ready for Saturday's Open Day. It's a good job I have so much to do in the studio/gallery... paintings to price and hang, re-organise the studio, cleaning, making cakes, etc. The list is pretty long.
Saturday 9th July, 11 am - 4 pm
The garden gallery will be open for business. You can view my new exhibition, ' Contemporary Art in Mixed Media & Acrylic', & enjoy a tea/coffee & a slice of cake in the new courtyard garden which will be transformed into a quirky cafe.
You will be served my girls, Mackenzie & Maddison who will be home from uni. They will also be in charge of Toby Art Dog.
If you would like to purchase anything it is cash only and a 10% discount on everything on the day.
Tea/ coffee £1.00
Homemade cake £2.00
The money raised ( after costs) is to go towards a local dog rescue centre.
Brand new workshops are now live on my website, on the adult workshops page.
Booking is via email or you can call me.
There are monthly full-day Saturday workshops and monthly Friday workshops.
If you fancy a private painting party for up to 8 people, choose your day, your medium, and your theme. I can supply glasses etc if you fancy a cheeky drink while you're celebrating.
I'm off now to prep the artwork for the exhibition and make sure the builders are cracking on with the grouting!
Have a great week. See you on Saturday.
Amina & Toby Art Dog xx
