a busy start to the month ...
I'm pleased that I've got into a nice rhythm posting in both places
sharing art tags and my erosion and wrecking projects
mid week ... Tuesdays and Wednesdays
yesterday Jo and I went over to Morvah Schoolhouse
it was an eerily foggy day driving on the coast road
between St. Ives and St. Just ...
the landscape ... a wintry russet brown
with a hint of seascape
and I was very pleased to find "Landscapes and Heads" open
an exciting and varied show of mixed media work
from the group "Unit 11" led by Sue Dove
this was my favourite installation
I found each individual piece full of interesting textures ...
beautiful painterly textures and marks
very inspiring indeed ...
and my other favourite was this art figure installation ...
with her beautiful rosy scarf
and interesting facial details
after the show Jo and I had lunch at Kegen Teg in St. Just
and did our annual book swap and pressies
I gave Jo ... Ruth Issett's Passion for Colour
and she gave me Lesley Riley's Fabulous Fabric Art with Lutradur
then I was bamboozled by this and made some purchases ...
it was so full of fabulousness and beauty that another visit is in order ...
watch this space ...
the weather did not improve for our journey home
it was atmospheric and very Cornish ... in a wuthering sort of way
I adore it over on that coast road
I love the contrast of the landscape compared to St. Ives and Mousehole
my favourite time to visit is spring when the landscape is yellow
but I don't know if I can wait that long ...
