Artists draw artists

The event with the Soroptimist Internations Liestal in the Schöni Sache Art Gallery was a very enjoyable evening, giving Heinke Torpus and myself the opportunity to show how we work and how we have portrayed each other. Such fun! And wonderful to have such an artistic friend! see more of Heinke’s work on her website: www.heinketorpus.ch  See what the Soroptimists are up to on: www.soroptimist-liestal.ch

Impressions of Ilfracombe and Lundy

It was a perfect British summer holiday…. with plenty of sun and some water! Very relaxing and wonderful to stay on a former pirate’s island – in fact the pirate theme carried us through – Little Newcastle in Wales was the home of Black Beard and Lundy saw several pirate lords making it their home – and paying the price.

Painting in a light house was a new experience – and very hot!!

Fishguard Arts Society Summer Exhibition

It was wonderful to be able to take part in this exhibition with my mother – and see the creativity active and painting in Pembrokeshire, Wales! Meeting other artists – I shared a wall with Ilona Bayley David and fell in love with the sculpture by Rosmarie Barr.
