It's back to the easel now, after a successful exhibition is over

Well, it is a few days now since we dismantled our exhibition at the Makers Mezzanine in Whitney on Wye in Herefordshire.

We did meet a lot of people during our exhibition as we attended the preview on Friday September 6th and stewarded on the afternoons of the 10th and 12th.

It's all about delightful duckling artworks today!

When a friend visited me during the Out of the Hills exhibition and asked if I could make a card of the duckling that was for sale there, it reminded me of the ducklings I had created in the past ( 4 of which have sold ) and I thought I'd share them with you. And of course we created some cards for our friend too....
