There i was sitting down relaxing and my wife reminds me that i have the gallery in half hour. So rushing about bunging things in my bag and charge up the garden pathing tucking myself in. I made it in time..
A man come in has a good look around and said those magical words for someone "I want to buy a painting" I look through our card index find the artist and the paintings not for sale...
Why anyone hangs a painting thats not for sale in the gallery I'll never know but the possible buyer wasn't inpressed

Have a good weekend yourself john. It is surprising  that  some of the arts not for sale. It appears that some keep putting up the same work over and over again because they dont  produces  much new stuff but want to keep there place in the gallery

We have about 35 artist and most of the work is for sale , we have only spaces for 3 paintings for each artists so you'd  have thought that he could  find 3 paintings at home to hang up for sale. Some do try and never sell their very best work and hope that it might bring in some commission.
