Well it was all very festive in the Preston Hobbycraft store on 9th December 2018. Lots of shoppers and people coming to say hello whilst I completed some paintings. In keeping with the Christmas theme, the demo paintings created were the Amaryllis lily.
These flowers are associated with Christmas due to the deep red coloured petals and dark green leaves. This is certainly one of my favourite flowers around this time of year.
Conducting demonstrations at Hobbycraft in the winter season provides me with time to reflect on the reasons why I paint. It’s the most relaxing hobby I have and I love that I can share this with shoppers at the store. Many more demonstration days to come!
