My St Ives

Hey strangers. The last two weeks have just been hectic! Fairs, deliveries, signings, hangings, painting, the list goes on but I have found new energy within me that I didn't know existed. I think its called adrenalin. So after all that tomorrow morning we are off to Cornwall for a well deserved three day break. It is a sort of business trip too, delivering eight paintings to the lovely Avalon gallery in Marazion and also for a meeting with Whistlefish galleries regarding my prints. All very exciting! But I definitely think there will be plenty of time to squeeze in a visit to the Tate St Ives, the Barbara Hepworth museum, many of the 50 or more galleries and craft shops that are scattered in St Ives. Also some good walks on the beach, relaxing lunches, bit of paddling, people watching, photograph taking, gin and tonic drinking and much much more. Oh I love Cornwall, I feel like I am going home. That is where my heart is, sigh....maybe one day!



I will be back Monday with hopefully some good photos and new artist finds. xxxx

I've always wanted to visit St Ives. I nearly got there once but then I got shingles and had to stop in Wales (also lovely). Hope your break is blessed with some sunshine.

brilliant! i am so pleased. you have to try it on a campfire though - it goes all charred and scrumptious at the edges. its got to be one of my favourite (and easiest!) camping dishes. we made it the other day and the fire was so hot it you could hear them sizzling really loudly, they didnt burn though they cooked really quick - they were amazing!!
