We are running out of drying space for the oil paintings so there was a need to be creative with our space.
I have a few oil paintings on the go, each at various stages and each drying at different speeds, some thin some thick.
I looked up some solutions and decided that a vertical rack type thing would work best for is. Here it is at the top left of this photo, there is only 2 paintings on it at the moment just to see if it works. I’ll make some more holes, to hold about 15 or so paintings I guess.
Also in the photo is a couple of winter paintings of our daughtets. Hopefully they will turn into full colour portraits before too long…
So the Harbour Arm Auction in aid of the Margate Caves has been and gone. All of the lots were sold, making it a white glove sale, wahoo! They raised around £7000, a fantastic amount to help with the reopening of the Caves. Now it might be ok to reveal which postcards Ann and I created…
I know her art work, especially ‘My Bed’ remains controversial, and will still cause a lot of rolling eyes, tutting and shaking heads when it comes to the Turner Contemporary next month, but I can’t wait. I can see me having a lot of conversations with friends and family about is this art? Well, whatever it is, I like it. I think I understand Emin. Welcome home to Margate Tracey…. #musttidymyroom.
Ann is taking part in the Fasion and Art Bazaar in Margate on Sunday 3rd September. She will have a very interesting and colourful stall offering gorgeous vintage headscarves, vintage buttons and plenty of artwork.
