Wales

Standard

Gosh I am behind! I had a lovely week in Wales with a group of people who were on a landscape photography tour. We stayed in a wonderful converted chapel near Llanberis. It is in the Snowdonia National Park and is in slate country. I was the cook so it was my job to keep everyone well fed and to produce meals at the right time. As ever I enjoyed meeting new people and learned a little more about photography. My purpose in taking pictures is to us them as reference material for paintings. Having spent years using pastels I am trying out acrylics with varying success. I will post a painting when I have one I think is finished.

Today on the radio we talked though a Christmas list of beautiful books to give as gifts. It is difficult to choose as there are so many I could have filled a three hour slot by myself!

Rickmansworth Art Society

Standard

I mention because I have recently joined this organisation.

We have an exhibition coming up on May 13th at Basing House in Rickmansworth. I expect to have a painting in this exhibition. I am very much an amateur artist and there are some very talented artists in this group. If you are in Rickmansworth on that Sunday pop in and take a look. Entry is free.

One of the members, Andrew Schofield, has an exhibition at Chenies Manor in May, from this Bank Holiday Monday onwards.
