"By The Pool"
The originals of these are all sold but if you'd like a limited edition fine art giclee print each one is available as a limited run of 100.
They are beautifully printed by Ironbridge Fine Arts.
Email me on firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested - I post wrapped in acid free tissue and safely tubed to anywhere in the world.

Another piece of work I'm grappling with at the moment is the stitching of a printed version of the painting you saw on the previous post.
I'm hoping to put it in an exhibition at the Redhouse Glass Cone gallery in September so I had better get a move on with that!
As you can see I'm really enjoying colour and vibrancy at the moment
And the growth of food at the allotment. I'm finding some lovely popping colours there which also taste super. First yellow courgettes at the dinner table last night and more rhubarb.... Food tastes even better when it's multicoloured!!

A trip to France has had me captivated. I have been lucky enough to be able to spend some time out without my children (wonderful as they are) with two fabulous friends at the organic smallholding of my husband's uncle.
The farm is in the Midi Pyrenees and lies an hour and a half north of Toulouse. Not many folk live in the area and the traffic is non existent.
Never have I experienced such deep and profound silence and peace. I felt very connected to the world around me. There was time to meditate, do yoga and chat.
We cooked food from the garden and ate our way around the hedgerows which are prolific in their food production.
We laughed. We sketched. Rachel painted and danced amongst the vegetables. Valerie swang in the swing, cooked and read and I did all of those things ....
It was heartening to know that it is still possible to live almost off grid and through the fruit of the land. Permaculture is a fascinating lifestyle and I have come away with many ideas to add to what I already do in an urban environment.
The key to this medieval building
Dave - leave the door on the latch .... we will be back!
