Last week I had 6 coloured pencil drawings of Bread hung in the Kings Meadows franchise of Banjo’s Bakery. I got a mention in the Arts pages of our local daily paper, The Examiner, on Saturday.

I have no idea how this venture will turn out. I am of the opinion that it’s better to have your work out of your studio and in the public domain. If people can’t see it, how can you expect them to buy it!

On Saturday, some of my Bread Art was featured on, what a great site! It gave me some ideas for further Bread drawings when the mood takes me.

It would be great to sell some work just before Christmas. It’s great to sell anything at any time of the year for that matter. The fact is that artists have to keep putting their work out where it can be seen. Galleries are not the complete solution, just part. There are other places that are crying out for art, but their owners don’t know it. Artists need to keep knocking on doors!

    Oh it looks fantastic Richard. I do wish you all the best in this venture.
    What a lovely bakery.
    I agree that we should get our art out there as much as we can…It’s just getting started and knowing where it will be accepted.

      Thanks Dors,
      The places are out there, one just has to look and be prepared to be different. I have organised three of my friends to have their work hung in a craft shop cafe. Craft and art together could be a challenge. I am interested to see how it works out.
