Well, the private view was lovely. Great to see so many friends. All of them loved the venue – Old Gala House, an ancient lairds house, added to over the centuries, and with impeccable taste too. The museum staff made us all feel welcome. And red dots appeared. Which, of course, was the point. The painting shown on the exhibition flier and other promotional material was the ‘Blue earing’. I’ve just heard that this has sold.
