Note the artistic window dressing, especially the windowsills

Back at art group this week, Barbara, who is married to Kevin, was back from her travels and voluntary work, and it was good to see her again after quite a long absence. She was working on a painting of the Lake District, while Kevin himself was painting another meerkat, to complete the triptych he’d started some time ago. Maggie was putting the finishing touches to her geranium with gold leaf.I have continued to work on my Canadian Rockies painting, this time, adding more detail to the mountains and some background colour for the trees in front. The photo I am using is rather bright, and the painting itself was beginning to remind me of the sort of thing you used to see in Woolworths years ago. Readers of a certain age will remember the “child with teardrops”, but sometimes there were also landscapes too, in Woolworths (or that type of shop). I have therefore had to tone the colours down.
This week, I would also like to give a mention to a forthcoming charity event at Clowne. It is a wedding fair, and I am told by the organiser that it would also be of interest to anyone organising a party or other event. It is in aid of “Elastic FM” a new community radio station for the area, being set up jointly by Clowne Enterprise and the Heritage school. It is on 2nd October at 11.00-4.00 at Clowne Community Centre. There will be free face painting, and a prom dress is being raffled. Also Elastic have a page on Face Book, for which they would like some “likes” at and at the moment you can win a Dell tablet just by doing that (UK readers only). Their page is at: http://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/Elastic-FM/283236495023764
More news next week.
