My Door Is Always Open

The Door Of Opportunity, Please Enter
It is a well known fact that people seldom do what they say they are going to do. This has been my experience and I'm sure that there are those of you nodding you heads in agreement. I, however endeavor  to be a woman of my word. If I say that I will be somewhere, do something or commit to anything, it will take an extreme circumstance beyond my control to prevent me from staying true to my word. Now that's out of the way, it was a sideways rant.
I have been at the gallery doing my choredom and tidying. No matter how much I tidy there always seems to be something that needs to be done. I have had five people through the door since 10 am. There was a mere sniff of a sale but I couldn't seal the deal. I did my best but I never want to be that pushy as I know how much I hate it when it happens to me.
If 'a watched pot never boils' then I think a new adage for me will be 'a watched door never opens'. I am adopting a new policy I'm not even going to look at it anymore. I shall; continue to busy myself with my work and various admin chores that need to be done.
I have an artist coming to see me tomorrow and I'm quite excited because her work is very interesting. I think it's actually going to be quite busy here tomorrow so I'm looking forward to that.
I am going to put the call out again for artists to donate a small piece of work for  a Charity Auction. I have had exactly 0 responses and I know how many creative people read this blog. If you are interested email me at info@lartishe.co.uk
Come on, think of all the good your donation could do both locally and nationally. It will be a great event with wine, women and song, well just wine and song although I'm sure there will be women but just not that kind of women. Dig out that, painting, drawing, print or 3D piece and get it to the gallery. I will continue to prod you, the first donor will receive a bottle of wine. Ok? In this incentive driven climate I'm willing to offer a sweetener.
Hope to hear from anyone soon.
