Neath lowering grey cloud along the beach at Dunwich, Suffolk at the weekend thinking about our impending Open Studios at Harrington Mill and also my participation in the Conjunction Biennial’s Soup Kitchen in November. Alongside this I have modules to revisit for the second semester at Bishop Grosseteste University College.  I find these trips away very enervating though they take one away from the studio for a few days.  Walking of course is a great way to sort one’s thoughts and ideas…look at Rebecca Solnit’s fabulous Wanderlust for ample confirmation of that.  But it also encourages a sense of well being that, as one gets older, is hard to find with any other activities and exercises.  So no apologies for posting this rather than a painting from the weekend past!
