A big challenge!!!

Within a month, next 14th and 15th  November I'll be present at my first Miniatures Show as a dealer! It will be in Madrid at Tom Bishop's Show, a very well known show which means a great responsability. As much as I know, there will be 149 artists from many countries, included Portugal of course.

I'm preparing it since last year. From time to time, I think it is  boldness! As I've told before, I started this work recently.   I have a long practice, more than 30 years, with different artistic expressions, but miniatures need other skills. I tried to develop them, working hard every day.

I'll be there, side by side, with a great artist and a great friend too, with whom I have learned a lot during this time - Ana Maria Morgado. You can see her marvellous work in her blog 

http://www.am-ambientes-em-miniatura.blogs.sapo.pt

Each piece I'll present was built from scratch, inspired here and there by real pieces, carefully chosen. Sometimes the choice was difficult. There are undreds of masterpieces I'd like to try...

Now, is time to start thinking how to present them to the public. I must admit that it's not easy. I have to travel to a foreign country, carrying everything I remember that may be usefull or needed. I'm a little bit nervous about that... I want  that everything will be perfect. I hope I'll achieve it.

Here is my first trial. I hope  you like it.

Hi Maria,

How exciting!! I can understand your anxiety about travelling. Did I forget anything!? Will all stay akoy during the trip? But what an experience it will be.

About your first attempt on the display, I love it. The base (with the purple/reb sub-base at an angle) gives it just that little extra, instead of an ordinary cut through section of some room. No, I realy like it, although maybe the vibrant red in the flower pannels could also be used in that base. That way the colors correspond and enhanches each other... But do, please, do as you please, it is nice as it is already!! And although there are só many choises to make, your work will impress on its own!!

Does attending as a Dealer mean you will sell the work thats on display? That implies you have to value your work and attach a price on each piece... Good luck with all the prep! Hope it will all go smoothly ;-)

love Debora
