    Thank you so much Magdalena for your good wishes.
    May I add my congratulations to Helen and also wish her much success. Also all the best to yourself and Janina with the forthcoming Mural work – Wow 10 meters – It is great to think that they will be the beautiful backdrop of meetings between EU MPs and Professor’s of culture and education – I am sure they will be very inspiring.

    My exhibition “Painted Poetry” has now been extended until 10th of April. So far lots of programmes and brochures have been taken by visitors though I still wait in hope for a sale.

    Though I have not sold any work yet I have received some very good and sweet comments in my visitors book and also emails –
    Like many fellow artists I paint for love and to share my creations with others so I feel this exhibition is a success and am happy to know my work has touched others.

    This is a very wise way of thinking…

    Painted Poetry exhibition has been extended till 10th of April – The next artist only requires the space for last couple of weeks of April so I was pleased to be asked to keep the exhibition up till 10th.
    The exhibition space is a free service to local artists.
    Though the waiting list is 6 years long and growing.
    All the staff at Leeds Art Library are very helpful and friendly.
    Though I haven’t had any sales which is nothing unusual I have however had so many wonderful and encouraging comments left in my visitors book that it has been a most uplifting experience so far.
