It’s been a busy month. Unfortunately, Graham has had toothache for several weeks and has been pushed from dentist to dentist. Hopefully the end is in site and he should get some treatment soon.

We had a good few days in London, we met friends, we went to the Proms and we saw ‘The Lehman Trilogy” which was brilliant. I also went to The Serpentine Gallery and saw an exhibition of Faith Ringgold paintings and patchworks which was very powerful, especially as a lot of them were relating to slavery. Her Grandmother had been a slave.

I loved being back in my home town and enjoyed the buzz of the city but it was also good to be back in the beautiful countryside of the Yorkshire Dales.

There was a ‘Big Painting Challenge’ at Farfield Mill one Sunday and I was coerced into taking part. The idea was to produce a work in one day and to have an exhibition of everything at the end. It was a sunny day and lots of people turned up. It was great to see so many people painting in the beautiful landscape surrounding the mill. I enjoyed the day in the end and this is the pastel I produced.
