Spot the Difference

This is my work hanging at PRISM on Tuesday....

And this is my work hanging at PRISM on Thursday...

Did you spot the difference? I know one picture is wonky and out of focus... but did you spy those little red dots? I sold all three of my dancers!!!!! I was very excited indeed when I arrived yesterday morning let me tell you! The exhibition looks really good and there is still time to see it. It's open today and tomorrow until 4 pm.

And not only did I sell some work but I was also interviewed for an internet TV programme yesterday which can be viewed here: http://www.justhands-on.tv/ . A very exciting day all round!

Totally unrelated, except that I have walked past it so many times this week, is Yinka Shonibare's Ship in a Bottle on the fourth plinth in Trafalgar Square. It is scale model of Nelson's HMS Victory but with wonderful brightly coloured sails made from the Dutch wax fabric that is Shonibare's trademark. I think it's fabulous!

p.s. Joe has arrived safely, spent two nights in Delhi and is now trekking in Northern India. I wasn't terribly reassured by his comment "We've eaten the meat and drunk the water...."!
