I started this month with a wonderful weekend in Swanage (Dorset). It was a Harding bonanza with four of my sisters turning up for our great nephew's 1st birthday. The weather was gorgeous and everyone was on top form so a lovely time was had by all.
I used the trip as an opportunity to gather some inspiration for a show I'm having at the Mulberry Tree Gallery in Swanage this summer. One morning we went to Durdle Door - in all the years I lived in Swanage I had never been! It was breathtaking and hardly ruined at all by an odd lady dancing at the water's edge!!
We also visited Lulworth Cove and saw a scene straight out of one of my paintings, with a beached boat and a few fishermen untangling their nets. I've been painting like a nutter ever since and have loads of ideas from the trip.
The Fowey show is coming up and I've sold 18 of the 25 paintings already so if you want one do not delay!! The exhibition runs from 7th to 21st April.
