Farfield Mill Gallery

My new studio in Cumbria is in one of the mill buildings of Farfield mill. The main building is an ‘Arts and Heritage Centre’ and I am thrilled that I now have some paintings, prints and cards exhibited in one of the galleries. I have also joined a local art group called Green Door. They organise lots of exhibitions throughout the local area, including at the mill, so I am looking forward to getting involved with them.

Three of our friends visited us at our mill on Monday. We have only had 2 days of rain since moving here but unfortunately Monday was one of them. Luckily it was still fine when they arrived so they could see the Howgills which are the magnificent mountains nearby and which Wainwright says are unique to this area. We still had a good day and they all enjoyed looking at the art and crafts in the gallery. Between them they bought a woolly hat, a leather belt and a copper brooch.

Here is my latest card, called ‘Hedgerow’ which is on sale in the shop. I painted it when all the Spring flowers were blooming in the hedgerows around the mill.
