I put my name down a few months ago for wall space in the Mad Hatter cafe in Brighton. They don’t charge any fees or commission so it’s a very popular place for local artists to show their work. My slot was due to be in January 2012!

Then I got a call yesterday saying they’d had a cancellation and would I like to put my paintings up for a couple of weeks?

So of course I said yes. 🙂

And here are some very bad photos taken after I’d sweated for an hour over hanging eight unwieldy canvases by almost invisible fishing thread from a height juuuuuuuust above what I could stretch to while standing on tables.

I think they look good though, not too wonky. And I got to hang out with the owner’s eight year old daughter and talk painting, which was pretty cool.

I’ll try to get better pictures next week. 🙂
