Stitch detail.

 On Instagram this week I am showing a few close up details of the embroidery I have at Quenington Sculpture Trail. It advertises the show and makes me realise that texture is THE thing! So here are some loopy stitches and 3d texture that you can only get in threads and what has always attracted me to embroidery and textile art.

Fresh Air Sculpture Trail at Quenington.

 I have had my friend Rosemary to stay and we have been gadding about seeing the local sights and last Friday we went to the sculpture trail at Quenington. It is a huge exhibition with lots to see but luckily there is a cafe for needed tea and cake! This is the pool room and a shot below of inside with my pictures on the wall. I have sold 3 pictures and the concertina book.
 Other pictures from around the extensive garden with the river running through it. What a lovely day out and if you go allow several hours to linger and take in all the work. I loved this paper boat called Hope but so much to see we may have to go back for another look.

Perpetual journal - June 16-23rd

After 2 weeks with no drawing because of my holiday and exhibition i have done lots this week! All the rain has caused jungle growth in the garden and lanes. It is supposed to be cheering up today! Hurrah for sunshine! A few technical difficulties being experienced with our elderly computer so fewer posts and if it all goes quiet here follow me on Instagram. Ps. At the bottom of the picture you can see my lovely limpet shells lined up that came back with me from holiday. I have a few ideas I would like to follow up with them when I get some time in the studio.

Freshair Sculpture Trail - The Pool Room exhibition.

The exhibition has begun and despite the wet weather is going very well. I have sold Field Map (the one with the badgers), Path with Grasses and the concertina Field book. Hedgerow harvest has an interested buyer too so waiting to hear about that one. Phew! What a beginning. I have covered my costs now which is the first worry. We are going to visit on Friday with my friend and the weather is supposed to get better by then. Will take some pictures and post them but there are some splendid ones on Instagram @freshairsculpture2019.Look at the stories. This is my bit in the impressive catalogue. I sent 10 pictures and the book so there are plenty of replacements as things sell. Lots of wonderful sculptures in the garden and even in the river.

Framed and ready to deliver.

Off to Quenington today to deliver 10 framed pictures, cards and the field book for the exhibition in the pool room as part of the Sculpture trail. The exhibition opens on Sunday 16th June- 7th July. It is a great outing so don't be put off by the fact that there is an entrance fee. The Old Rectory, Quenington GL7 5BN. www.freshairsculpture.com. I will take pictures when I visit. It is only a small exhibition space and there are lots of lovely artists exhibiting so not all my work will be displayed at the same time and when things sell they will be taken away. Ask Jo or a member of staff if there is something you especially want to see. The commission on all the works is 50% so expect prices to be higher. Sorry about the date stamps -still getting used to new camera!

Holiday in Falmouth Cornwall.

 A few holiday pictures from Falmouth, Cornwall. We had 2 rainy days and the rest was mostly sunshine- not bad for England! Falmouth harbour.
 Grey mullet from the Maritime Museum viewing basement- there was a glass panel into the harbour, so these are not in an aquarium but free fish.
 The King Harry chain ferry.
 Trebah beach and gardens.

 A victorian shell grotto and limpets on the beach.
