Coming together nicely

How many little red dots will I need for the exhibition? How many pictures will I sell? I haven't a clue. It would be nice if I could sell some, but it will also be nice if people are interested enough to walk around and take a look, and maybe ask me some questions. I will enjoy explaining how they were made, and if someone is inspired to try and make their own, that would be good. 
I have made the labels for each one, these will be below each picture. They all have a number, and a title, and the price, all hand written.

I have some pre printed paper from many years ago so I cut it up and hand wrote my contact details on them. These will be on my table to give out, and people can pick one up if I am not there.

I have written two lists, one for me, and one for the library to keep at reception. They will have to deal with any enquiries in my absence. I am not spending any money on getting paperwork printed, I can hand write everything.

It's coming together nicely. Still got to write a bio, I've been watching videos to see what I should put on it. A week to go, I should be ready.  Now I must go for a walk. Bye bye. ilona

  5. I love these details of the "business-y" side of your art. And you are such a neat writer/printer! Mine goes every which way :)

    Good luck. You have worked hard to be ready, and seem to have left very little to luck, but I will wish it anyhow.

  6. You have been busy. It's great that you are getting to exhibit and market your wonderful creations.

  7. I'm so looking forward to hearing how the exhibition goes, hope you sell lots.

  8. Good Luck with your exhibition Ilona I'm sure it will be a great success.If I were nearer I would definately have popped along and said "Hello". Looking forward to hearing how it all went instead and hopefully lots of photos.

    Hi Ilona, haven't commented for quite a while, but read your blog always. Have really enjoyed watching your progress in creating so many incredible pieces and sharing it all with us. I would be hard pressed to say which has been my favourite, I loved so many. Always bright, colourful and thought provoking pieces - wish I didn't live so far away, I would love to see your exhibition. Wishing you the very best of luck, though with your oodles of talent, you won't need it. Thanks again for sharing, best regards, Terry in Reigate
