The opening of Domestic Pilgrimage was delightful. The weather was glorious and the outdoor setting for the food and wine part of it was beautiful. We put the finishing touches in the gallery minutes before people started to arrive, and I felt that everything was perfect, so could relax with my family.
The food, which my parents made with help from E, Louise and Liz, was a work of art in itself.
Lots of people came and said lots of lovely things about my work. They tended to spend quite a long time in the gallery which mostly had a hushed atmosphere, before coming out into the hot sunshine to socialise.
This is what is next for me, but I will also post more about the show soon.
Thanks Liz for these lovely photos, and for all your advice and encouragement over the past months of preparing for the opening.
