With Chelsea Flower Show drawing to a close I thought I'd share my 2 shows from many years ago.
Chelsea Flower Show 2006
This was the biggest show I had ever taken part in. I was very nervous coming up to the event, but I had a great bunch of guys around me helping out.
My friend Sarah came found me when I was grabbing some luck to say that Alan Titchmarsh was on my stand and wanted to by a sculpture!!! I even got to deliver it to his beautiful garden.
I got in trouble from the RHS for my stand as it was pretty basic. It was a huge success with the visitors and I had many sales and commissions.
The working title of this 9”x12” oil on my easel today is JENNIFER’S FOUNTAIN. It’s on my friend’s ranch in Santa Paula that I was blessed to visit recently, as I continue to explore Santa Paula, CA. I was struck by the shapes & light hitting this & I’m always drawn to anything involving water! Another few minutes & I might be done. #shannonceliafineart#ilovefountains#santapaula
