On The Road with ipaintdogs in 2019

This Summer I’m going to head out onto the open road and attend some Dog Fairs with my Dog Portfolio & paintings, I can’t wait.  Do you attend fairs? If so, did you find any treasures?

2017 & 2018 have seen me holed up in my lovely studio making works and gaining my orders via the internet.  This, of course, is great stuff and I am one happy artist - what isn’t so great though, is not meeting my potential clients face to face and gaining all that lovely feedback in real time.

ipaintdogs, 2019 events & fairs

So, this is the year that I’m heading back out on the road - taking my dog paintings with me.  In truth, I’m a bit nervous! It’s absolutely ages since I’ve done a show and one can get out of practise very very easily!

So, I’m easing myself back in by attending lovely events where the stalls are welcomed and the feedback is just a precious as the big fairs.  I’m going for Summer Dog Shows, Fairs & Fetes, and come the Autumn & Winter, Christmas Fairs too.

I’m super-excited.  You can find a list of my fairs here….

Hopefully see you there!
