Spent the weekend moving Dave's paintings. Yesterday we took a large panel from the Byzantium series to Kendal in the Lake District, to a buyer who had seen the painting at the exhibition at the See Gallery. It was a tall, thin painting - unusual, but it fitted the space at the bottom of her stairwell perfectly. Something rather special about seeing a piece of work moving from the unvisited studio and starting a new life with someone who loves and appreciates it.
Then today I moved the remaining paintings and other work from the See back to the old studio. So that episode is over. It has served us well, both marking and supporting the formation of the Trust. Although we would like to see another exhibition of Dave's work soon, it's inevitable that our efforts will now be focused in sorting out the studio.
