I finished a few more bird folk designs this week for the shops and summer fair onslaught this year. My next stand/fair will be Cowslip workshops summer fair/openday (Launceston,Cornwall)on 20th july so pop along and say hello if you can.
I spent the sunny weekend down on the beach. I have to say that when the sun shines down in Cornwall I dont think I would want to be anywhere else in the world.
I love were I live and with the wild flowers spilling out the hedgerows and the blue sky You can see why painters and artists alike base themselves down here. I visited Flat Load which is just outside Redruth and took 195 photos on the camera.....even that is excessive for me.......the norm is about 50 a trip out ( which is still accessive I admit it )
Flat load is field after field of wild flower meadow with old mine chimneys and victorian workhouse buildings slowly being consumed by time back into the ground. I wont bore you with too many of the photos but here are a few of the best ones.
mmmmmmmm.........I feel a painting coming on. I think that new canves will be Flat Load inspired now not Bird folk led.........MMMMMM....we'll see it will probably sit there a few more weeks-months before I touch it.
anyway.......back to the flat load pics.
Wow, sorry about that. Got carried away, I could see myself putting all 195 photos up, yawn yawn....sorry. Well as you can see its very beautyful and worth a vist if you need a little inspiration, great for mini beast/bug hunting too with the kids.
well I hope I haven't sent you to sleep with this post it is quite a long one. Take care and enjoy the sun x
