When I went to Woodbridge the other day I stopped off on my way at Martlesham Heath to collect a beautiful turquoise and sterling silver bracelet that Caroline Sullivan has been making for me. Caroline has shown for the last two years at the Lexden Arts Festival, and will be exhibiting again at our new Festival at All Saint’s Church in Maldon at the end of May. Her knitwear and Viking knit jewellery (made with silver, copper and bronze wire and gem stones) has been very popular with our punters. If you’d like a preview Caroline has an Etsy shop which you can find at www.etsy.com/shop/bycarolinesullivan
Here I am in the studio this afternoon. Can you see the bracelet on my right wrist?
I’m making a start on a new painting in my Landlines series. This one is a view I found by Hillhouse Wood at West Bergholt in the late spring of last year. The lane down from the church curves away past the entrance to the wood. The picture will be Landlines 3: Lane. This is a lovely warm spring-like scene to be painting while I wait for some brighter weather to make my next visit to the River Stour.
Friday again! Enjoy your weekend! 🙂
