I made a trip the family recently to the opening of an exhibition of Stephan Knapp's work at the Mid Wales Art Center (http://www.midwalesarts.org.uk/)
The exhibition is housed in an old cow shed and in the part of the old farm house.

During our visit we stayed in an converted cow shed ourselves - subsequently I had to make a drawing of at least one old cow shed! Also included is a painting of the hillside view from the house.

Trip to St.Ives

During a recent trip to St.Ives we stayed in a beach house which backed onto a cornfield and sat in a hamlet on the cliffs.

The Alfred Wallis lighthouse which can be seen from Gwithian sands

During our trip we made visits to the Barbara Hepworth studio, Tate St.Ives and the Bernard Leach pottery.

Very appreciative of the fresh sea air, delicious sea-food and multitude of fantastic artists/ craftspeople who have congregated in the area.

work in the country

I have recently been dividing my time between the big smoke and a nice hideaway in the country. Here is a picture of my workspace when I'm working in country...
