Staithes Art & Heritage Festival 2016

We had a great weekend taking part in Staithes Arts and Heritage Festival, sitting in the very characterful 'Garden Cottage', drinking tea and talking art and poetry with so many (and varied) people. We even managed some decent sales and the 'Naked Soul' combination of Jo Lewis's poetry and my artwork went down really well. Especially pleased for Jo because it affirmed that what is deeply personal is also fairly universal - people were clearly moved by her words. Very grateful to Jim Mason who lends us the cottage each year (and lets us put holes in it) and to my sister Caroline and Husband Paul who come and support us in all kinds of practical ways each year. Feeling the love. :)
