Christmas is a comin'

Gosh there is a lot going on in Brightlingsea in the next couple of months ! All starting early November.  I will be showing work at the Waterside Gallery, The Coach House Coffee Shop and at Sea Green Studio on the high street, all up until Christmas week. I will be exhibiting a mix of paintings, small and large, some 3D work and some small surf styleeeeee driftwood pieces. All three venues need checking out for those unusual Christmas gifts. The Waterside Gallery will be showing a collection of arts and crafts, a continuation of the last very successful couple of years. Alex at the Coach House Coffee shop will be hosting a wonderful selection of local artists work which you can peruse whilst pigging out on coffee and cake. Sea Green Studio  has a fab eclectic mix of art and vintage home wares, from 50's tea sets to drift wood signs and of course 
locally made handy crafts and art.

I have a great couple of days beach combing, all the wood is drying out in my shed. In the meantime I have been working on some small pieces, ever the scavenger ! and framed them in deep box frames.

 Thought for the day, taken from 'Buddhist offerings 365 days' October 20th :
'True love for our neighbour will be translated into courage and strength. The more we develop love for others, the more confidence we will have in ourselves. The 14th Dalai Lama

I was only dreaming about the sea.
