On Self Promotion. How do you do it?

On Self Promotion.

I was thinking about a post that I put up on Linkedin yesterday. Re-reading it today, it sounds blunt and lacks any poetry.

So I want to improve how I promote myself. How do you do? I went to a seminar given by Faye Smith at Sheffield Hallam University in Marketing and felt awkward talking about what I’ve accomplished and where my work is now shown. I’ve had similar discussion with Lesley Black. Is it a matter of practise? Or something else?

Magister Litterarum, Merit. Glasgow School of Art.

Yesterday was the closing of the show. Some dear friends came to make the closing of the M.Litt Graduate degree show, Glasgow School of Art, 2016 special. Alice and Allan brought purple plastic Martini glasses and a bottle of bubbly. We toasted the paintings, the friends, the institution, the building and the show as I turned off the lights as we talked out.

Today is results day!

I passed with Merit. MERIT from Glasgow School of Art!

Bliss: Glasgow in Sunshine.

For the past two day we, in Glasgow have had warmth and sunshine. It’s been utter bliss. 

Since I’ve been here I’ve made a small garden from bits and pieces from Poundland. It’s 1.5×1.0 m by 6 inches deep. 

I’ve had flowers from April and a good crop of strawberries. The star of the patio has been the poppies called Shirley’s doubles. The petal have stayed on despite the torrents of rain and wind! God Bless them.


A Year in 1 min and 26 sec.

This shows my progression over the year of this Masters at Glasgow School of Art in Painting.

I know that as a friend I have been preoccupied, not in contact so much and probably a bit obsessed: Sorry. And, thank you for encouraging and supporting me.
