Corn 13 - Exhibition day 2

Day two..I spent the whole day up til 5:00pm talking to visitors to the exhibition..had around 60 people in.It's really interesting seeing which picture people are drawn to. 'Elephantine' is a popular attraction as are the aeroplanes. But one thing that has even at this early stage been confirmed is that most people like my surreal/fantasy pictures best! The people who like these cover all age groups..this Has pleased me so much because they are what i enjoy doing the most! I also managed to sell two prints and a greetings card. Sitting there also enabled me to demonstrate my drawing..so I was able to work on 'Corn' for a good length of time!
This picture shows Jan relaxing with her book during a quiet spell. The area just outside the window is (if you refer to the photo of the Guildhall in the previous post) directly below the tower and is a major thoroughfare between the Market place and Market Hall..(photos another time)

Who is that beautiful looking broad with the stylish dress sense and intellectual stance? Must be one of the artist's many groupies, the one who won a competition to stand and contemplate in the auspicious surroundings of "the exhibition of the greatest hyperpointillist of the twenty-first century"! What a lucky girl. See how enamoured she is! I believe she does talk to customers on occasions but is inordinately shy for cameras, being quiet and retiring by nature! She likes the pictures though and thinks the artist has lovely arms...
