I am happy with this pair titled 'a good day beachcombing'. You can see a well worn easel. I am working on the very last two paintings now for the show which will make 25. A signing session of some exclusive limited edition prints for the show is happening in the morning. We are publishing 7 in total. They will be available only through myself and Baxters gallery. A small edition of 25 of each will be available. More on that soon. I made the most of hubby being away and had a wonderful dinner with an old friend in a pub high up on a hill overlooking the sea last night. Lovely fish stew and berry pavlova. I am especially excited at the moment about going to see the wonderful Feist next Thursday night in the Palace Theatre, Manchester. I will leave you with this that makes me very happy indeed. Actually this one makes me happier, the video is magical, you can't not like it. Bear with it though, it may sound strange at the beginning.

Another finished and available from Baxters, Devon.
I'm grumpy today because hubby has jetted off to Cannes film festival without me. He will be working, and having meetings but even so, he packed lots of pairs of shorts, and his tuxedo so I imagine there will be a bit of red carpet action, star spotting, chmpagne drinking and watching films on the beach in the sun! Next year I am going!!!! x

Chez Amy

This week has been hectic, I had a long long
drive on Tuesday (nearly 12 hours) to deliver the 19 paintings ready for the show opening next Friday. But I broke the journey up with an overnight stay in the best B&B I have ever stayed in, great company, great magazines by the bed, Clinique products, soft and fluffy towels, and a gentle wake up call. Its called Sion and Amy's house and it is THE most delightful place to stay. They have amazing taste in everything and wonderfully hospitable. They just so happen to also be our great friends. It was like waking up in a beautiful Summer Sky. The sun is still shining and busy is good xxx
