Happy New Year 2014

We’ve had a great start to the year. We went to London on January 2nd for our annual Winter trip to catch up with theatre, exhibitions and friends.  We saw some superb theatre including ‘The Commitments’ and ‘Mojo’ and some great exhibitions including Paul Klee. This exhibition at Tate Modern is huge (17 rooms) and is wonderful. I discovered Klee in my first year at Art College and I still find his work inspiring. One of our friends took us to Broadway market. I didn’t know the area but really liked it. It’s very lively and there are some good bookshops. We had beef burgers in an Argentinian cafe, they were huge, delicious and cheap!

After London I went on to Whitstable to visit my friends, Sue and David. Sue  fell recently while playing badminton. She broke her hip and had to have a hip replacement, so I went to help out. She was well on the way to recovery so we went on some trips, one of which was to the Turner Contemporary Gallery in Margate. I don’t like the look of the building from the outside but it is a good space inside and I have heard that it is helping the local economy.

This weekend we visited out friends who live near Kendal and enjoyed being in the stunning Cumbrian countryside. I have often painted the views from their cottage and here is a painting from a previous visit.
