The planned ‘special end’ to this particular London visit took place on Wednesday evening at Whitewall Galleries just off Bond Street.
After buying a painting by Fabian Perez in Manchester earlier this year, we were invited to the gallery in London on Wednesday evening for the start of the artist’s UK tour.
……. and here we are with Fabian Perez himself – a really nice and very modest man.
The discussion was something to do with painting black on black!
Fabian Perez talking to two young collectors, Doug with Helen (owner of Whitewall Galleries) and, gallery manager Anna.
Fabian kindly dedicated the painting to us.
Then, of course, we needed a photo with Helen – all as mad as hatters, making a public display of ourselves!
After a wonderful evening it was good to get a bit of fresh air before getting the bus back to the boat. Selfridges is looking terrific as usual with it’s Christmas lights.
Thursday we journeyed the 4 hours to Packet Boat marina at West Drayton, where we’ll leave “Chance” for the winter, pumped out the toilet tank and moored up (in the dark!), loaded up the car with all and sundry and drove home where we unloaded and put everything in it’s place by 8 o’clock.
The last week in London has been a ball and it’s been more than a pleasure to meet up with so many friends while we were there. We’d love to have stayed longer but there are pressing things ahead!
