Higham – the River Brett and the Stour Valley: Summer
The latest painting in the River Stour series, finished last week.
Hard to believe that I am more than half way through my Four Seasons on the Stour project! I did the next visit – to Wormingford this time – last week. This is the view of the Stour from Wormingford Bridge.
Last time I went out Stour exploring I missed out Wormingford and hopped round from Nayland to Bures, but it really comes between the two.
I have called a bit of a halt on painting until after Open Studios now, as I have so many things to get ready – like Christmas cards, which I have yet to start! I ordered some mugs on Friday which I think should be very attractive. They have complete wrap-around pictures taken from details of my Landlines series of paintings. I’m looking forward to seeing what they are like in real life. Also, my calendars have been ordered, and I am excited to see them as this is the first time I have had them professionally printed. And they are A3 – BIG – which should get round the problem of people looking at my previous calendars and complaining that the boxes are not big enough to write in . . . .
I’ve just printed off all the Open Studio invitations this morning, so they will start dropping through people’s letter boxes in the next week. If you live around Colchester, though, don’t wait to be invited – just come! All the details are in my last post, and also on the Colchester and Tendring Open Studios website, not just for me, of course, but for a host of other artists whom you might like to visit.

Hope you’ve had a good weekend! 🙂
