I know that it is a some time since I was here. Spring was in the air today so I wandered around the lake. Sat on the bench put there in memory of the man who gave the lakes to the local preservation trust. It was lovely to have warm sun on my face and to listen to the bird song it made the noise of the traffic and the odd train seem unimportant.
I have been busy doing a couple of on line courses. The first one is MATS Bootcamp. Lilla Rogers is an a very energetic and enthusiastic Art Agent. I decided that it would be good to have a regular assignment to do and to belong to an artistic community. I am enjoying it and it has made me do things that I have not done before and the information and support is brilliant. This is a piece I did last week, not quite what was asked for, but my interpretation.
The other one is DWYL for life, run by Beth Kempton. It has been a wonderful experience. I have a plan now for what I would like to do in the future. I would recommend this course to anyone who feels that they want to do more with their lives and really live. The support has been excellent. Some of you know that my life has been a bit crazy in recent years and then last summer my Father died. That is the main reason I have not been blogging, needed to just do something else. Three years ago I took him back to the village he lived in when he was a child it is just over the border in south Northamptonshire. I wonder what he was thinking as I was taking this picture. This is one of the fields that he played in. It was the last time we went there. We saw where my Grandmother was born and where her Mother spent all her life. Went to the local churches including the one at Hinton in the Hedges where he had been a choir boy.
I am sure that I will keep blogging; may well be something different, need to formulate all my ideas. I will certainly be back to let you know.
Welcome to the spring weather and longer days. Happy creative weekend.
