We set out early to avoid the traffic and crowd. It was so energising. Some of the work was interesting but amateurish, some embarrassingly poor and some wonderful stuff which I would have bought if I had enough wall and wallet.
A couple of Anushka's priceless observations:
One of the more indulgent artists asked her if she liked painting, to which she replied yes. Then he said maybe she would display there one day. She blushed and later whispered to me that she would give her art for free . She would not charge for it. Because she did not want people to "waste money". Then we got into a discussion on art as a means of livelihood and so on.
Her greatest worry was what would happen if bird shit landed on the paintings? Would the artist be able to clean it....would it affect the painting...this led to a discussion on medium - water vs oils and so on...whatever little I knew that is
