Fitting Tribute To Harry Becker

I continue to be moved by the will, enthusiasm and motivation of communities of people to commit to organising complex and exciting exhibitions, which bring together artists and appreciators. 
The Inspired by Becker exhibition in Wenhaston Church is a full weekend affair - with plenty of other activities going on. There is a cafe in the sweet little Church Room, not only selling teas - but breakfasts, morning coffees and lunches too... Sketching, walks on the common, talks by the Bat man and more...go HERE for further information and HERE for a list of artists
Thanks to combined efforts and the interaction of the wider community, this is not only a tribute to the artist Harry Becker but also a celebration of the village, traditional art and craft, rural life and farming before mechanisation:




When invigilating on Friday, I was lucky to meet Emma, who has three little sketches in the exhibition. 
Also I met the lovely Ruth at last. 
She organises the show, so we have been in touch by email a good deal, but it was great to meet Ruth after all this time! 
It was fun and a pleasure to meet Jillifar, Will, Thomas and Arabella too....

You can just see the amazing medieval painting on the wooden boards on the wall:





 Wonderful Gothic Medieval text at the base of the Doom painting:







An Industrious Day For A Creative Bunch

Back home from a really lovely day in the company of eleven very different women; fun interesting and feisty in equal measure.
Thank you girls for making my Sunday - for trusting and being brave and trying new things.
From a simple brief and the same inspiration, so many interpretations unwound throughout the day - and each a fantastic outcome of which you should be proud.
Here are just some of the photos I took:

Lucky To Show With Such Lovely Women

Here are some photos of our exhibition at STUDIO 20, in Norwich
Finishes Sunday
I realised the images are soft and gently fuzzy because I must have rested a sticky fat finger on the roundy lense bit on the back of my phone:
