It was the opening of the exhibition at Merz Barn recently, organised by the Green Door Art Group. A friend was staying with us so we went along. We first visited Elterwater where there were Morris Dancers performing outside the pub. I noticed that a lot of them were women. As usual it seems these groups need women to keep them going!

The exhibition was in a small barn that had once been a cattle shed. It looked very cosy with a roaring fire in the stove. When they were putting up the exhibition the electricity had cut out so they had to finish by candle and torch light!! But you wouldn’t have known! Most of the paintings were inspired by the work of Kurt Schwitters and mine was the only one that showed the barn!
