New Day.

This morning,  just now - 7.15am - a Tauranga sunrise from my verandah.  A new day glows brightly.  I sold three paintings over the weekend and I haven't counted up the number of limited edition prints.  All is wonderful!

My new art website is in the process of being created and will be up and running this week.

Schedule for the day:
1. Return the flood lights, easels and mobile 'gallery' panels.
2. Return trailer.
3. Take a couple of prints to the framer (entrusted by the purchasers).
4. Do the washing up after the dinner-party last night.
5. Take one of the paintings to the courier and check on its postage to Christchurch.  Inform purchaser and also inform of my bank account details.
6. Go to the Apple Centre and retrieve information off fried internal hard drive
7.  Go for a walk on the beach
8.  Tea and movie at 89-year-old friend's place

Tomorrow:  Paint!


  1. You sound like one busy kiwi!

    Congratulations on the good results...

    You aren't a slouch as a photographer either; that sunrise is gorgeous!

    1. Thank you Robert. I feel I am really on my way!

  2. Well done on selling three deChevalle originals and several limited edition prints. I knew I should have whipped a couple of originals from your folder when you weren't looking!

    1. Thank you thank you YP. The name I go under, is of course, not De Chevalle. I'm 'coming out' next week.
      As for any whipping, I am grateful you did not, as two of the ones I showed you (I think) were among those sold.

      More when the website is up and running...

  3. I'm wondering with all your busy schedule recently if you missed this post of mine. Be sure to read it all the way to the end!

    1. Soon I'll have a bit of time Robert. It poured yesterday so didn't get the panel delivery done. And I also have a fun appointment today: mammogram. Yay!

      PS. It's not ready yet, so stop making comments on my new website. Cheeky monkey.

  4. well done - sounds like a successful "show" - arfe we any nearer appointing a UK based rep yet?
