Summer 2022

I can’t believe its four months since I wrote a blog. I’ve posted new paintings but forgot about my blog!

I’m trying to think what I’ve done since May but some of the highlights are a trip to Ludlow, Higham Hall, glorious weather and Covid!!

We stayed in Ludlow for a couple of days because we went to a ‘hooley’ to celebrate the life of our neighbour, Paul, who was a performer at Country Fairs and festivals. He was granted the freedom of Ludlow Castle and so there was a short service there before an evening of food and music. We also stayed in Shrewsbury which is a very interesting city.

We were supposed to spend a few days in London in July before going to a family reunion in Southend but that was cancelled due to a train strike. We’ve booked again for London in October.

I spent a wonderful five days on a painting workshop in Higham Hall in The Lake District. The weather was amazing which was very unusual for that area, the food was delicious and I enjoyed a time of dedicated painting. Unfortunately, I came back with Covid. Graham then caught it and ended up in hospital with pneumonia. He’s just recovering now.

Apart from that, it’s been a good Summer but with the energy crisis, a new Prime Minister and now the death of the Queen, we’re not sure what lies ahead!

Here’s one of the paintings from my week at Higham Hall. I haven’t had it photographed properly yet but that’s Rydal Water in the foreground and Windermere in the distance!
