Affordable Art Fair

Yesterday i had a chance to pop to the Affordable Art fair which is held in Battersea Park.
Galleries sell work from £4 to £4000, a very eclectic mix to suit every taste, can't say I saw anything near £4 but it is always fun to look around and get some inspiration.
This installation with upside down daffodils was at the entrance!
