We are open! The sun is shining, we have had lots of visitors on our first day, and returning to the Hotel Carvoeiro Sol, on the seafront at Carvoeiro on the Algarve felt like returning home!
We had our first visitor before we had even opened – whilst we were setting up a gentleman came in and asked if he could look round – he said he wanted to come early so that he could be our first customer!
We have lots of new things for people to enjoy – including some new bright and colourful acrylic paintings
Dave has a bigger selection of A3 and A4 prints of his wonderful photographs for you to browse through too:
And don’t forget our new ‘Print While-you-wait’ Service – if there is a photograph or Limited Edition Print that you would like – we can print it for you in A3 or A4 size – and you can choose whether to have it mounted like the ones in the picture above ready to frame – or rolled up in a tube ready to travel.
If there is a painting that you like from my website that has already sold – you can probably find a signed Limited Edition print instead – these hand-signed and mounted prints are unique to our shows – and there will only ever be 25 copies of each for sale.
This time we also have lots of smaller gifts on sale too – you can buy a colourful key-ring for only 1 Euro, or a large fridge magnet for only 2.50 Euros. Small Framed prints complete the range for only 10 Euros – all perfect as little gifts or mementoes of your time on the Algarve.
All of the paintings are displayed on our own easels – they are all at the perfect height for you to view them properly – and you might be surprised at just how reasonably priced they are – we even have a ‘bargain corner’ with original paintings for sale for only 50 Euros
The hotel has lots of comfy sofas – so you can have a rest while you fill in a Free Prize Draw form – someone will be winning the beautiful framed photograph you can see in the shot below – it might be you!
We even have a ‘kid’s corner’ with crayons, pencils and lots of ‘how to draw’ guides for children to enjoy – and that’s children of all ages of course (you’ll spot me down there if we are quiet!!)
We are open every day from 12 – 8pm – our last day is next Wednesday 29th May – but don’t leave it too long – we have already had one disappointed couple who came in as they had seen a painting they had admired through the window before we opened – and I felt so awful at putting a red dot on it as it had already sold!
The hotel is easy to find – it is right beside the main square in front of the beach – you might well find me handing out leaflets and chatting to people outside – well it’s a good excuse to get out into the glorious sunshine!
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the newspapers, on-line sites and magazines that have supported us in this venture and given us some amazing articles and features – here’s just a selection:
Algarve Daily News 090513
Inspirations Algarve luxury on-line travel club site

So why not come and see us – and please share this with anyone else that you think might be interested – we have already had the pleasure of meeting some old friends from previous exhibitions – and also making some new friends too – which is one of the best things about running our own show!
