meeting of minds

August 4, 2008

Last night I was invited along to a evening in the Hollybush with a bunch of local artists. And what a bunch. I’d been invited along by Jen Aitken, and met Colin Halliday, Mark Preston and Gareth Buxton.  We spent a couple of hours sharing stories, chewing the fat and getting passionate about what we do, paint! A really good bunch of like-minded people all trying to make a living through art, and all coming up against the same obstacles, and all celebrating each others successes.

Often it feels that we work in isolation, and evenings like these give you the solidarity you need.

good choice of pub too!
