From West to East

I've come from the south-west coast of Cornwall last week to the East coast of England today, Brancaster Staithe in Norfolk. It's my first visit and I have found magic here so I will definitely be back!
The sun was shining all day and there were lots of walkers and families spending time together as it's half term holidays this week in many parts of the UK. I met with quite a large group of other artists which is always so much fun to do. We had travelled variously from Norfolk, Suffolk and Lincolnshire.
I have been a bit quiet blog-wise since my return from Cornwall as I've had a manic few days framing. As you know I paint my own frames and each one needs three to four coats and then wax for protection. I had eight frames to do this weekend. On Monday I had a deadline of getting my six taken to the courier for submission to the annual Royal Institute of Oil painters exhibition. Now a nervous few days waiting for selection results!
I'm also busy finishing off my latest magazine article so if you don't hear from me over the next couple of days, that'll be why! The photography stage is the part I really pull my hair out over!


  1. Bonjour,

    C'est une superbe composition... J'adore la lumière qui vient lécher les éléments qui la compose.
    Un lieu sans doute idéal pour peindre.
    gros bisous

  2. Your a true artist Haidee, you have done another fab painting! You can make a beautiful painting from quite mundane subject's, you are making me look much harder at what's around me, and trying to see with artist eyes instead of waiting for the obvious wow factor. thank you. (Just wish I could make the same magic happen!)


Thank you for your words!
