Froggatt Show 2014

We get home from NZ and I realise Froggatt Show is the next weekend. I thought we would have missed it. I quickly dash of an email to the organisers and arrange a stall. Yay - there's room. I love the idea of chatting about art, listening to brass bands and admiring locally grown vegetables all on the same day. 

We have our gazebo, no need for the usual paste table as sturdy tables are helpfully provided, we bundle art, child, dogs into the car and set up.

Setting up

We have a very pleasant afternoon chatting to neighbours, chatting to people interested in my art, chatting to people interested in the dogs, listening to the brass bands eating cake and ice cream and avoiding the showers (not too many of them fortunately).

I hope I can get a stall next year, and also get our acts together to enter some vegetables / crafts / cake competitions.

Holiday sketchbook

I managed a few sketches whilst visiting family and friends in NZ. Such a creative place, almost make me want to paint landscapes. (almost)

I love working with ink and living in an area surrounded by horticultural stuff. Meet one of the neighbours!

Textile time

A day trip to London to primarily see this exhibition was entirely worth it. 

Artist Textiles Picasso to Warhol.

Oh I do like to be beside the seaside...again!

We were lucky enough to have spent the first week of half term in Cromer...I did a little bit of sketching, landscapes are not normally my thing. Fun though.

Feeling sheepish

I've been looking at Henry Moore drawings, always loved his sheep. So...trying to get in touch with my inner Yorkshire self, I set about with pen and ink to draw some of the locals. Despite being Derbyshire sheep I think we made good progress.
