    Hi folks

    I'm very sorry it didn't go too well this time. Michael. your host, lost his mother at 7am Thurs morning. He had been her sole carer in her bed ridden state for the past six years. I did speak to him on Thurs and at the time he sounded as if he was coping and wanted to do the event but I guess that is the way adrenaline works, and perhaps it all hit home next day. We are all human and doing our best on a voluntary basis, so I hope you will forgive this time and try events in future, as when the group meets successfully, we have a great time.

    I always put my number on event listings but it is up to the individual hosts as to whether they choose to do this.

    Best wishes and Happy Easter,

    Julia

      Hi Julia, thanks for your message. I am sorry to hear about Michael's mum death, it must be a hard time for him right now. Michael himself, has already apologized for not been there with us and because we are all human we all should understand that unforeseen circumstances like this are prone to happen sometimes instead of being so judgmental or take it to heart. My heart goes to Michael and his family in these difficult moments. Best wishes and Happy Easter to you too.

      It was very good of Michael to continue with the meetup in the circumstances and I really appreciate the effort of organisers such as Julia and Michael. I am grateful to have been introduced to the National Portrait Gallery drop-in art event and intend to go again, so despite a bit of confusion it was well worth going. My condolences to Michael and I hope that we'll see him again soon.

    Disorganised. It would have been simple to have a PAYG SIM in phone on evening of meetup and give out number on web page, but no phone number given. Organiser did not attend his arranged later-on-in-evening meeting place in the foyer and at the arranged time (due to illness it turns out from an email sent the following day) yet did not post the status at the time that he'd "GONE HOME" on the comments field of this web site, as with this courtesy we'd all have automatically received the email notification. Organiser didn't have a clear itinerary plan posted on web page of the times and location of after-NPG meet of which no further detail given at Chandos.

    • Joanna McInnes

      Sorry you didn't feel welcome, Santosh! Did you introduce yourself as from the Meetup group? Maybe you were talking to people who weren't part of the group. Hope you will come to the next event.

    • Santosh Kumar

      Not sure next time.

    I couldn't find anybody either, but enjoyed the evening though.

    Was an interesting evening. Bit confused at the end. We waited for Michael at the arranged meeting place in the foyer and at the arranged time, but no one else arrived, though we waited for half an hour. So we went to All Bar One and found the table Michael had reserved - thinking you guys had gone ahead but sadly no. Oh well, still an interesting evening and hope to see you guys at a similar event in the future :-)

    Sorry, unable to attend now due to unforseen events. Hopefully another time.

    March 29, 2013

  • Emma-Lee Adams

    So we are meeting at 6pm tonight then? At Chandos? Is there a phone number just in case I don't spot you guys? And presumably we take our own drawing equipment for the drawing class? Never been to a class at the NPG before so not sure of the protocol. See you guys later :-)

    Hope to attend as have enjoyed previous events. Will definitely try to be at the drawing class so hope to see some of you there. I'm on the waitlist so possibly see you in the pub beforehand. By the way I can definitely recommend the Man Ray exhibition which I saw in Feb.
