  1. On the farm looking at the sun picking out glowing Autumn colours in the trees and a smattering of snow on the ground.

    Going to visit the annual charity art exhibition for St Gemma's hospice at Leeds Grammar School today - I have pieces in but like to see all the other great work there too. It's open until 4pm Sunday 28th October Would also recommend The Mercer Gallery Open Exhibition for a visit in Harrogate - my favourite was Margaret Morris's 'Weather Patterns'. Margaret is a Harrogate printmaker whose work I first came across at the North Yorkshire Open Studios a few years ago - there's some great pictures on this page of her beautiful landscapes.

    Now that my big North York Moors exhibition is done and dusted I can start to think about other projects. I've been rather taken by taxidermy fish in glass cases on ebay - there's all sorts of wierd and wonderful things on there! I seem to have a bit of a fascination with my aim is to move away from landscapes for a while and try my hand at creating fishes in boxes!


  2. Warmth of the sun and green all around + fabulous honeysuckle and lilac scents...
