Last week I was sketching with friends, such a lovely way to pass a a day and I thouroughly enjoyed it and felt very relaxed.
There was sketching at the wonderful Tintern Abbey. My hubby took some lovely photos, but you will have to pop over to his Facebook page to see them. He's a bit reluctant so only a couple there so far but I am hoping to convince him to be brave and post loads more.
Before that I was a Clevedon Pier where it was very peaceful until we got invaded by about 40 school children on a school outing
But I have also been doing some leather work. I made this custom designed Dice cup
Then I bought some lovely soft leather and made loads of notebooks. The cup has gone to its new home but the notebooks you can buy from my folksy shop.
Then I took up the challenge on Facebook to paint this little chap. I don't really know why as he won't have a home :-( as I don; know who's cat it is, but I did enjoy the challenge. So any suggestions as to what to do with him please let me know.
and finally I couldn't resist, I just had to paint some more sea. This was finished today and is off to its new home in Cornwall at the weekend
So all in all a very productive week.
But thats not all...........I have plans,
I have this week arranged to share a venue for North Somerset Arts week in May 2015, With the fabulous Wight and Wight
Sarah makes stunning silver jewellery and also makes lots of other crafts and they are all very very fabulous.
I will update you when we have the venue finalised . I also have to finalise a venue for my solo exhibition September 2015. It will be in Cornwall and I have provisionally called it 'Watching the Sea Breathe". I expect you guessed it might involve paintings from the sea, but just in case there was any doubt I thought I would go for a name thats sums up my obsession for watching the Sea.
