Somerset Art Weeks 2010 Venue 66

Tomorrow See's the start of Somerset Art weeks.
This year I am Venue 66
It's a great event, I wish they had done this sort of thing
when I was a kid.
It can be so inspirational. I love the event.

Last year I had so many visitors with such a small showroom so
this year I'm determined to make people feel welcome.
Hence the sofa.
Don't worry I haven't spent a fortune on furniture, In fact I believe it all
happened after my episode of mild peril, Tracey commented following the rescue of the chap
in the ditch on his mobility scooter, that some Karma would be coming my way.
Well it did,
Our friend's Joff & Tricky ( don't ask )
have just sold one of their houses and asked if I wanted to
come and have a look if there was anything I wanted as it had to be cleared .
So they gave me a sofa, a Mirror, a rug, two CD racks and a stereo system.
Perfect timing to create the area I wanted to.
You may notice the picture frame in front of the telly
Here is a close up and what it's all about.
It's my favorite extract from the Book
 Bernard Leach
A Potters Book
first published by faber and faber in 1940.
So as you can see there is a method to my madness.

more pics as the week progresses.

Your showroom looks very welcoming, I'm sure you'll still be packed full of customers.
Enjoy.

Space sells pots. :) When your customers feel comfortable they know your pots will carry that feeling too. Good luck!
