Autumn at the studio

Summer finally feels over, the studio is getting a wee bit colder, but visitor number are up. Tomorrow we start a fortnight of "made in North Somerset celebrations, so are hoping it will raise even more, This is a big marketing campaign to get people to look at what they can buy locally , which I think it is fantastic. I was too late to be included in any demonstration or do anything special but I will be in my studio the one extra day painting for all to see.

Well thats if I can get any inspiration, which has been sorely lacking this week. I have been beavering away but I am just not production anything good. This is probably for a few reasons but I think the main one has been that Mr WD had been away. I haven't been sleeping too well and my diet has gone for a burton, I have been on a giant sugar overload. Mr WD hasn't really got a sweet tooth but while he was way I had loads of sweet stuff. So on a sugar high I haven't been able to concentrate . So I am back on a more sensible eating routine and hopefully be producing some decent work again. Opps daft aren't I.

I am happy to say that my workshops are getting filled up and that I had a private lesson at the weekend that was brilliant. I have so many ideas for more workshops, but I need to get them down on paper and see if they will work. I will also be putting in another card order next week so hopefully will have some more choices available soon.

Next Friday the 23rd, then we are having a 40th anniversary celebration at the centre. I am looking forward to it as there will be a mural painted onsite by Bristol artist Damien Jeffery and I am a bit of a fan of his dark brooding seascapes. Check out his website to see the wonderful murals he does.
Everyone is invited so if you are in the area why not pop by between 7pm and 9pm we would love to see you.
