    My first exhibit

    Hi Guys.

    As promised this are the news I told you about. I have been away from the forum due really hectic time at work but also due to having to prepare my first exhibit of both my furniture pieces and my carvings.

    I was lucky that the room was big and I hadn't to share it with other people as it is usual among amateur wannabe artists. The exhibit lasted almost three weeks and I must admit that it was well received by the viewers and although I had quite a few serious enquiries about the prices I made no sales. By "serious" I mean people that was really interested in buying not those who only want to find out "how much this guy dares to ask for that".
    Some of the pieces you already know but some others are new to you.

    Here are some pics.

    This is the flyer I made for it.

    Congrats, Toni!

    And what is this "wannabe artist" stuff? You, sir, are an artist by any measurement of the word.

    Having had the privilege of getting to use one of your carvings in my church commission I can say that your work is superb and anyone who sees it should be impressed.I am surprised that you didn't get any sales. Very impressive.
