Yesterday we opened my solo exhibition of landscape paintings at a gallery in Asbeck, Germany. My works will be on show until 28 June.
I was pleasantly surprised by the number of visitors who turned up for the vernissage. Some had followed the invitation while others had read about it in the papers. During the course of the day several small groups of tourists came in to have a look as well. The reception started with a glass of sparkling wine or fruit juice while I took the opportunity to introduce myself and my work.
Visitors were able to order coffee and cake or buy a bottle of wine from the wide selection the gallery was licensed to sell. Some interesting discussions followed where my work received a lot of praise. It turned out to be a pleasant afternoon in beautiful sunshine.
