Update April 2016

Journal Entry: Thu Apr 14, 2016, 10:39 AM


First of all lets get the apologies out of the way - sorry for not being a good 'deviant' - my time on DA this year has been woefully poor, it would be easy to blame this on apathy and a sense that DA seems to have lost its way over the past 6-12 months, but it is probably more to do with life getting in the way of a hobby, and slowly turing that hobby into a career! 

An update on my last two journals; firstly the open gallery (Taking Online - Offline!) this is still something I want to do - I have had to put it back a bit due to issues over gallery availability, which is still an issue but I can see an opening during this summer and hope to be better prepared before announcing next time - especially as I received a great response from everyone here on DA.

The 2nd journal (Pick your favourite Drawings to win 2000 points) was a big disappointment for me - over the years this has received a massive response from the DA community with dozens of comments and thousands of views.  This year very few people took part, and the number of comments were very low. I am not sure why - but the lack of response meant that it would have been difficult to shortlist the drawing chosen.

Anyway enough of the moaning, and on a positive note I have spent the last month getting ready for my first exhibition in the UK.  I will be attending the Cornwall Art Fair (LINK ) that runs from Thursday 22nd April through to Sunday the 24th April.  I have arranged for all of my most popular pieces to be on display..

Contemplation by Paul-ShanghaiSplash Happy by Paul-ShanghaiWet! (2015) by Paul-ShanghaiWet (Pencil) by Paul-ShanghaiFemale Bodyscape Drawing No. 4 by Paul-Shanghai


And many more besides - I will also be selling a number of limited edition prints - unframed and framed at a reasonable price.
I realise Cornwall isn't accessible for everyone, so I will be tweeting (paul
_stowe)  on an regular basis throughout the 3 days, and will create a journal entry for DA after the show.  If you are able to come along - pop me a note or a comment and I will let you have all the details and make sure you gain free entry :)

Started drawing again after 20 years - loads of fun, every drawing poses a different challenge, which when overcome is incredibly rewarding.
