This year I will participate for the very first time in my local art festival, Oxfordshire Art Weeks.
I will be showing in my own studio and that is another first.
I had no idea how much work (and capital)goes into putting up a solo venue!
One of the things I decided to not outsource this time is framing.
Framing is a must for watercolor art as color are brought to shine and depth by a nice glass on the paper (not to mention a good protection from the elements).
I spent all afternoon today cutting the mats for a few pieces (yet another first!) and I have gained a whole new respect for the framers 🙂
It’s hard work!
