Next weekend is the last time this year that I will be opening the doors of my home and studio to welcome art lovers visiting the Lewes Artwave Festival.
It has been so lovely to meet so many new people over the last two weekends and to catch up with old friends!! Thank you so much to everybody who has visited from near and far. I have had the pleasure of welcoming Zoob fans from all over England, Germany, South Africa, New Zealand and Australia. It is so amazing to meet so many incredible lovely people and I am so touched and delighted by all the excitement that you bring.
Here are a few of my favourite comments this year…
‘Thank you so much for meeting me yesterday, to see your art in person, and to meet you was a huge delight….( better than a catholic meeting the pope as I said in my travel blog ).’
‘I just wanted to say it was an absolute delight, as always, to come to your Open Studio last weekend and have a chance to see the amazing range of your works – a real treat for the soul! They are always inspiring and uplifting… and thank you for sharing yourself, and your home, with all your visitors!’
‘Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed visiting your exhibition yesterday. I truly fell in love with all your work! To be able to see it close up and really appreciate the layers and colours and beautiful textures was just fantastic. I wish I could’ve stayed there all day! It certainly was worth the 5 hour round trip to take a look. I know people have come much further and I’m not surprised!’
I am loving having my home filled with my oil paintings, Zoob goodies and wonderful guests full of overwhelming enthusiasm for my work. If you haven’t had a chance to visit yet there is still time. It would be wonderful to see you for the final weekend, September 5th & 6th 12 – 6 pm.
It is such a special time of the year for me when I get to really see where my paintings go to and to be sure that the right works end up with exactly the right people! During the Festival I also have my very popular sealed bids event which can allow people who never imagined they could have an original to do so! I am a great believer that if you wish hard enough dreams can come true!
It will also be the last chance to enter my special giveaway to win one of my favourite original miniatures, Pale Blue Day. The bowl is full of entries but you need to be in it to win it! I will be picking my winner just before I close my doors for the final time at 6pm Sunday September 6th. Do please come along to see the draw take place if you are local!
Also do pop into lovely Lewes restaurant the Limetree Kitchen for a spot of lunch or supper and to view more of my paintings.
Wishing you all a very happy week, with love, Jessica xxx
