Still Ill

Aaah Cute

I have to apologize for no blog yesterday but I actually was feeling a bit rough and had to close the gallery early. The good news is that I feel much better today. I got to the gallery and set about the arduous task of cleaning the windows. It is very weird that they get covered in a greasy residue and no I don't mean the hands and faces of hundreds of window smudgers just general grime.
It has been unusually quiet for a Saturday, I have great expectations of the one day that the majority of people have off work. Maybe I should lower them accordingly.
One of the best things that has happened since I opened the gallery happened today. A father and son came into the gallery, the boy was about 7. They were here for ages discussing their favourite paintings and what makes art abstract. Why they liked the pictures that they did. It was such a brilliant thing to hear. I wish that more parents would bring their kids in and let them talk about art in such a refreshing way.
I often see children ask their parents if they can come in the gallery and they are usually told no. It is a shame as it is never to early to start appreciating art.
Keeping it short today as although I am feeling much better I can't focus as I am still not 100%.
Hope that you are having a fantastic weekend.
