I’m finally able to sit down and post again – it has been a very busy week and the need for quality time with my man was uppermost in my mind today. He has been working so hard at his day job and spending every evening giving my website a complete and professional redesign. I’m excited about that but he tells me it is still some way off being completed…watch this space because I love what I have seen of it so far.
(You may also notice a new look to the blog, and I think it’s now a lot slicker).
Sunday I reserved for us. Keeping him away from the PC was my cunning plan, and, I’m pleased to say, it was easier to persuade him than I thought. We took a short drive to Kynance Cove and I packed us some cold chicken salad, a bottle of red wine, deviled eggs, strawberries, banana cake, coffee..the whole picnic thing. He assured me that we would find a quiet place to enjoy and he was right. The cove may attract a quarter of a million visitors every year but today we could have been the only ones there. As a first time visitor, I have to say that it is a truly, mindbendingly, heartbreakingly, inspiringly beautiful place. Out of the wind, with the sun warm on our faces, I could have sat there forever. We took some photos and the one below was a piece of his work….I know I’ll find the artist in him someday!!
“Beauty On A Small Scale”
We spent a good few leisurely hours before buying an ice cream down at the Lizard and heading back home. We had a quick walk around town and returned home sun tired but contented. On days like today, I know that I shall miss this place terribly when we move back to Grand Cayman, which, although equally beautiful, is so different.
As for work, I have been struggling with the Dreamer series and thinking a lot about future projects. A local boy who works in our butchers had the opening of his first exhibition at the weekend and, I’m sorry to say we missed the opening night. We have promised ourselves that we will look in at the gallery tomorrow or the day after.
I have had a lot of contact with a variety of folks since starting this blog and seen some really inspired work. Just one example are the paintings of “Wulfric”. I think he has a wonderful and evocative style, shown to best effect in his forest pictures – tangible atmosphere I think you’ll love.
I’d like to thank all of the people who have left comments here and encourage everyone to check out some of their sites which I have linked to on this page. Thanks too to other bloggers who have linked to me, and, if you would like a link back, don’t be too shy to ask, let’s help each other spread our art!
I’ll be back soon with some more links to places of interest for artists as I’ve been cleaning up my bookmarks but one place you might like to get yourself a listing for free is at Artists Sites Only a one page listing with your bio/statement but it takes a couple of minutes and you are done.
Ok, enough waffle from me for now. I’m going to curl up with another glass of wine and wind down from a wonderful summer Sunday. I hope you all had days as good as mine.
