Birmingham Show. We are making a first visit as an exhibitor to one of the country's largest trade shows. We will be offering originals and Limited Edition Prints. An empty stand next door has resulted in the organizers asking Raul to paint live – the space is 10m long and 2m high. Plenty of good publicity!!
Limited Edition Prints are being created of works for which we are frequently asked. These are marked in the Works sections in the web page with the letters LEP.
Sale of large religious work to anoymous client who will donate it to St David's Cathedral. As the Cathedral is experiencing large reconstruction works this will remain with us for the present but is available for view.
