It was a fantastic event organised by the CPS, certainly one I will never forget. Thanks to Tim, Dennis, Phil, Ian, Dianne, Flick and all others for making it such a great experience. It was good to meet everyone else for the first time, and means I now will know them when I bump into them again. Fabulous.
I was there selling my paintings and drawings. Sales were good; I got rid of more than 3/4 of my stock, giving me plenty of money to buy plants, and buy plants I did. I think the total of plants I came home with is 35, meaning that car space was limited when combined with the mountain of luggage, and I was a squashed little thing in the corner with nepenthes pitchers knocking off my head and vfts biting my elbows.
Enough chat, pictures now.
This is when we first set up.
This is was the next day when a lot of things had gone. I did manage to get rid of some of the things here.
I do have more pictures but these are the best.
Again, I loved the event, and I do hope the CPS organises something similar again.

Indeed you have some very good skills and I am a huge fan of your work.
It was a very nice EEE and a very social event.(Thanks to everybody)
The painting of the cephalotus gets a special place on the wall.

Unfortunately I missed seeing many pictures, as I was only able to attend on the Sunday and I believe sales were good on Saturday.

Apart from commissions, I think I'll do a bit more wildlife art now.

Your art is fantastic, I would have bought the cephalotus painting, and the cobras!
Thanks for sharing!

The plants all are fine. The hamata had an accident in the car when we got home (I fell asleep and dropped it in the car, spilling it all over the floor), breaking a leaf at the midrib slightly, but no harm sems to have been done to the plant or the pitcher which is joined to the leaf. It is now sitting proudly in the living room with no complaints. It really is a remarkably hardy plant.
Go on, show 'em off!
