Everyone here is busy getting ready for the summer exhibition here, which is part of the Art Tour (details www.networkartists.org.uk) an open studio event featuring work by about 90 Northumberland artists, ranging from glass, textiles printmaking to jewellery, painting and photography in many locations around the county.
We have sent out the annual catalogue of new work, along with some limited invitations to a preview on sat 5th June, as we have limited parking here, but please email me at email@example.com if you'd like to come along, and we will expect you!. Cake and Pimms from 3pm
I have just taken up eventing. It is possibly the most thrilling sport I have done. Dressage, showjumping cross country all in one day. I must emphasise that I am at the very lowest level of the sport, on the most genuine, reliable, willing horse possible. I never imagined myself doing this, and appreciate every moment. I did not, however, appreciate having to fix 8 studs to my horses shoes on saturday (on top of everything else) for the dressage phase, on grass, which can be very slippery, then REMOVE 8 studs to show jump on a fancy surface, then replace 8 studs to go cross country. So, I have got the hang of the studs.
New paintings are all away being framed and I cant wait to get them back hang them safely on the walls.
