This is a new departure for me – being part of a Fringe Festival! It might be local (Ludlow) but you know what it is still a Fringe Festival! I wanted to do something different for perhaps you have seen me either at the local (Spiritualist) Church or Centre giving a demonstration of my Psychic Art, but this is a new venue and that something different that I have been looking for!
I have found that my artwork has changed over the years and yes I have surprised myself too, below are some drawings I have done over the last year or so during my demonstrations.
I would love you to come along to this evening, even if you are just wondering what is it all about and would love the support. Who knows you may walk away with a message and a picture!
Yes you are reading this right – a workshop.
I am really looking forward to this day. As people are getting hold of some packs of cards, help is needed. Not to worry help is here. At Horninglow Spiritualist Church, on the 13th May 2017.
This day will be filled with working with colour; what does it mean to you, what do feel about a certain colour. Then working with symbolism; what does an owl mean to you, if the owl is flying does that mean something or symbolise something to you? There will be of course a chance to work with the cards! And all of this for £15 for the day!
I don’t want to give too much away but I aim the day to be filled with laughs, and learning a new perspective to things. The important thing to remember for this day and for using the cards, there is no wrong or right answers, and how you look and see in the cards may not be seen by others. It is your perspective.
Now also on the day the packs of cards will be for sale, and YES, just on this day they will be at a special offer! But you will have to be there on the day and attending the workshop to get the special offer!
I will be coming back to give you all an update to how the day has gone.
If you want to have more information or even go onto my mailing list why not drop me a line and you can do so on the form below.
This was a networking event that anyone can come along to. On this evening I did taster sessions of Reflexology, working on the hands or feet. I understand that some people hate their feet or even to have them touched. But Reflexology can also work through the hands in the same way it does with the feet. There will be others too …….. giving a sports massage which is something that I do not do.
I also showcased my Perceptionary Cards. These are new to the market, exciting and colourful. I have enjoyed making them, but I love to see how others see them. Each time you look at a card there is always something new to see.
This was an exciting evening as well as being interesting to see all the business that are in this market town of ours – Ludlow. This is the first time to my knowlege that The Square has held anything like this and I don’t believe that it will be the last either. Who knows this idea could spread to other towns showing the diversity that is there, not just chain shops and coffee houses taking over everywhere.
So How Did I Get Here?
One day I was looking through the local paper and I noticed a small article about a competition looking for local photographers and to enter. They were looking for people who do not normally exhibit, who were local to Ludlow, for someone who had been taking photos for a while. In fact they were looking for 7 people. The idea being that there were 7 walls in the gallery and so each exhibitor would have a wall. The selection process was that the 7 would be picked by a panel and randomly too. So, my thought was OK, would I be silly in entering into this competition I better give them a call to check. That is what I did, I gave the gallery a call and said you know I have never (the truth and honest way is the best) done anything like this, I don’t even know if my photos are worth a consideration, as I normally use my camera on my Sony xperion 3 phone as it is handy.
The reply I got was why not come to the gallery have a look around and I can chat to you about it. There really isn’t all that much time left to enter though. That is what I did. In going to the gallery, and finding wonderful pictures, my thoughts were that I was kidding myself. And yet there a part of me saying “yes, but you never know, if you don’t give it a try you just wont know, and if they say no is it going to kill me am I going to die? NO.” I showed Peter (gallery owner) a couple of images from my phone and he was not discouraging at all, in fact he was saying how I get hold of a form fill it in with one image and then send in another e-mail with a few more images. I was not being turned away – he wanted me to enter, really could I be in with a chance?
So I went home filled in the form submitted about 6 photographs and then waited. And waited, for the all important email telling me if I was in or not. But I was in which was great news, and so daunting at the same time. I now had to chose between 4 to 6 images these had to be framed and given the dimensions of the images too and then think how much do I want to sell them for. What I had not accounted for being a total armature in this was the resolution of the image is not great. This means that I could not do great big prints I could only go up to an A4 size anything bigger looked wrong. Small was great but not when you had to take into account the wall space you had as well.
I went to the local printers and got the printing done as well as the framing although not much time was left for the framing. It was done and now was the fact that I had to hang them. None of the frames are the same size so I decided on an abstract way of hanging the prints. Totally different to everyone else but that is OK as it reflected more about me and who I am. The exhibition started on the 11th February 2017 and will run till the 11th March 2017, they are there for you to have a look at, please do. I am overwhelmed that I got through but proud that I had a go and how far it got me.
I say this to all out there, if you don’t have a go how do you know if you can’t do something or how far you will go? Have a go, for me I knew the worst they could say was “no thank you not out kind of thing, thank you”. Is that going to kill me – NO. So why not have a go!
Here is what my set of photos looked like on the day
