Art and Fashion

I love Milan.

I had a nice breakfast and then walked across the small park to the tube station. I had been slightly worried about going right across town on the metro, but then I remembered I used to be  Londoner and anyone who can cope with the tubes in London at rush hour can cope with the sleepy, very clean and quite small metro in Milan. And so my journey started.

I arrived at the Art Fair too early, I hate to be late, but it was just lovely sitting in the sunshine appreciating the calm and wondering why they were trying to sell Minis outside an art exhibition.

Funny though it may seem, by the time I arrived my nerves had dissipated and I was full of happiness just to go around and look at the painting. There were not many Galleries there suitable to take my work and me not suitable for them either. But there were one or two and I showed three Galleries the beautiful art book my niece Rosie made for me. Everyone was very nice, no rejections, I chose carefully, and one Contemporary art Gallery  that was interested in my big abstracts and another in my small water colours and another who had really beautiful work on show told me before looking at my art book that they only worked with 4 Artists but could they look at my book anyway. They were very complimentary. They all loved the book. Then happily I saw the gallery that is representing me at the Affordable Art Fair in St Sebastien. So all in all a good day out.

Followed by a nap at the hotel before going out to take these photo’s of just a tiny few of the amazing clothes shops here in Milan. A feast for the eyes!

    thank you Tess – it’s another world – way out of my league!.  However, when we were first married we often stayed at Trevor’s father’s home in Green Street, Mayfair.  after dinner we would wander down Bond Street and look at the wonderful window displays, and dream….. never could and never would be able to afford such luxuries.  It is nice to see how the other half live.  Still, we are happy enough with our lot and we have had a good life – we are very lucky to be living in such a glorious area of the world, and we count our blessings every day.  Love Anne         > Message du 18/03/16 19:09 > De : “Tessas Painting Trips in Provence” > A : trevor.zutshi@orange.fr > Copie à : > Objet : [New post] Art and Fashion > >WordPress.com
