Colourful St. Ives

Such a beautiful spring weekend
blue skies
a warm breeze
aquamarine sea
yellow lichen covered rooftops

sweet scented spring flowers
a lovely day for a visit to a favourite gallery

falling in love

with every single one of Matthew Lanyon's paintings
in the Porthminster Gallery, St. Ives

enjoying the colours of St. Ives

there is so much going on for me right now ...

I'm preparing for a week of workshops next week,
revealing the contents of my erosion bundle and
posting about a collage paper swap I did as well as
the heart I made for Chrissie, more natural dyeing reveals
and trying to get back on track with showing more sketchbook work

Quite soon I will be announcing the opening of my online shop
but I want it all to be perfect so I'm still "tweaking" a few things

Thank you so much for reading and following along

creative wishes

Good luck with all your work- especially the shop which I am sure will be great. The weather looks perfect there- I hope it's still the same when I arrive in a few weeks time.

Oh thank you ... all of you. I do need a bit of encouragement when it comes to the shop. I want things to be really nice and I'm so busy I need to get a few things out of the way first so I can concentrate on getting it lovely
