Perfect day.

I keep meaning to write, really I do, I have so much news that I don't know where to start with it all. I have updated my site, there, I've started! One thing a day maybe, that might make it easier.

Here is the final painting i started last week. The sky was at least 8 different colours and they never felt right. It is currently in Oriel gallery in Barmouth, Wales, and will also be in my shop, in the next couple of days. I added more daisies as I thought they really drew you in to the painting.

I am busy painting new works for Baxters Gallery in Dartmouth ready for the Regatta that is coming up there, so lots of colour and bunting.

We had a well deserved day off yesterday. We drove with friends to the coast. Of course I forgot to take photos, I am so rubbish like that! It was windy and the waves were crashing onto the beach, just how we like it. We went here, here, and hereWe had a lovely Sunday lunch here and then came home to meet some more friends whose birthday it was. As a birthday gift Sean designed site a site for our lovely friend Amy whose cakes are magical, more images to be added soon. They really are spectacular. So a perfect Sunday really, the sea, good food and good friends! (some sun would have been quite nice too I suppose).
Oh and I told you a long time ago that the one thing I do whilst painting is light candles. So I am very excited that I ordered a few new ones this morning from 'Coasts of Cornwall' I can't wait to smell the Raspberry and Vine tomato and also the smell of Cotton sheets. Victoria lives in my beloved Cornwall and has a really lovely blog here.
So I promise I will be back again this week, sharing more. x

Hi Janet

Sounds like you had a wonderful time at the coast yesterday, I love the atmosphere at the beach when it's wet and windy, but I always take a flask of tea and a blanket when I go!

I absolutely adore your paintings and would fill my little cottage with all of them if I could, so I am delighted that you have mentioned me in your blog today. Thankyou so much for the link and I hope that you enjoy burning your new candles whilst you paint.

I'm off to drool over those gorgeous st Ives paintings some more...
