|What Claire wore today!|
Claire looked at each work very carefully. She is an installment artist; she seemed to find some inspiration from some of students' works in the show. After she saw everything, I explained to her some of my works and how Mike cleverly secured my works to the plinths and walls. She could use similar systems when she does some of her works for display.

Then, our neighbours came with their friends. How lovely! They told me that they enjoyed the show. I wanted to show them what I do. They had no idea!
Soon afterward, two very tall gentlemen came straight into my space in hurry. After a while, they looked upset. Just when I was about to ask if I could help them, one of them asked me if certain masks were sold. Yes, they are. They looked even more upset. So I offered to do a commission work for them. They want to go ahead with it. How wonderful! They are visiting Canterbury from Europe, so their mask will be shipped to the continent. Thanks to my Etsy shop, I have lots of experience shipping all over the world. I was able to quote the shipping fee from the top of my head, too.

Then I had a great conversation with an English gentleman about my works. It is wonderful to be able to tell stories about my works. He was interested in Very old and even older and Out of sorts.
I was already very happy before the gallery gave me an offer to show some of my works after the show in a front room, which has not been used. I hugged Hazel, the curator. I always wanted to have a local gallery to show my works.
So after five, when I came out of the gallery, I couldn't care less about the light rain falling. Mike was waiting for me behind the gallery. I had lots to tell him.
