Cumbria Life

Great excitement because Farfield Mill has been nominated for an award in the Cumbria Life magazine awards. It was voted by the public and then chosen by a panel of judges to be in the top five of the small galleries category. It is up against stiff competition as Blackwell House is also in the running. We don’t imagine we’ll win but it’s great publicity.

Autumn has been glorious this year and I’ve been painting outside more than I managed in the summer. I’m still working in pen and ink but am combining it with watercolour and pastel. I haven’t used pastel much before, despite Graham having bought me several sets of colours. I am really enjoying the freedom it gives me, especially when combining it with watercolour. Here is a painting I am working on at the moment. The original is larger than this but I can only scan A4!
