Yes, today is show time at Gallery Movitz here in Stockholm. Tina Thagesson, daniel Luther and I are having a joint exhibition. It’s really exciting and I am very happy to be in the company of such great artists. They have a lot of experience so I’m learning a lot from them. If you live in Stockholm please do drop by to Gallery Movitz, Hornsgatan 40. We open at 11.00 on the 17th of March. St. Patrick’s Day! You are very welcome.
It may be kinda strange to have an exhibition at a law firm. The company is situated in the wealthier part of town. They have clients visiting them everyday, who knows maybe they will buy my art … in between suing and being sued. The official opening will be next Wednesday, that’s when I will sell most of the work that does get sold, it’s an important day. Mentally, I have moved on; I’m thinking about the next exhibition. I have started painting for it but unfortunately bad health is hampering me a little, I am over the worst of it now so I look forward to a summer of inspired painting.
I am happy with my exhibition so far. The opening day is when one sells the most, like my first exhibition in April it was mostly friends who bought and I am so happy they did. Next year the challenge will be to sell to strangers outside of my circle, I have a summer show that will be a true test as I am not the organiser of the event. I’ve started painting for that exhibition already as I have lots of free time right now at my current exhibition.
