April 2020

After a long, wet winter, I am sure we all looked forward to sunshine and the joys of spring. Little did we know what dreadful situation awaited us. I hope you are well and safe in lockdown and taking good care of yourselves.

If you have followed my previous blogs you will know that I am in the process of buying a house. All was going well, but with the Coronavirus restrictions, the purchase is temporarily at a standstill. It is frustrating, but there are more important issues to address at the moment. When restrictions are relaxed, I’m sure all will be well.

Most of my possessions are in store, but I had managed to keep my art materials available and have a few more paintings to add to the gallery. There is a landscape of the River Fowey at Respryn, which is on the Lanhydrock Estate near Bodmin. It is a favourite walk of mine with my Labrador Holly and there is a particular spot where a swim is essential, for her of course! There are beautiful walks through the woods and alongside the river. It was a sunny day with bright sunshine and dappled shadows on the water. The river is beautifully clear and it is a delightful spot.

“Still waters” is an image of peace and tranquillity with serene light and “Breaking Waves” was inspired by my love of the north Cornwall coastline.

I am now a member of “Drawn to the Valley” which has a membership of more than 150 artists living or working in the Tamar Valley area of Devon, with the aim of bringing the natural beauty of the area to notice through art and craft. The standard of work is high and the website is worth a visit, – drawntothevalley.co.uk

Thank goodness we are blessed with warmer weather, which helps to raise spirits in these difficult times. By the time of my next blog, I hope all will be safe and we can look forward to getting back to normal.

Best wishes and stay safe.

Kind regards.
