- Whitby Abbey North Yorkshire

Spent last weekend in Whitby. Walked east along the Cleveland Way cliff path to the Whitby Fog Signal building Had some time on my own when I returned so I sketched the Abbey from alongside at the same altitude. I usually draw/paint it from near sea level showing it overlooking the harbour above the picturesque jumble of cottages tumbling down the hillside.

- 10 paintings

Ready! My 10 paintings for the "Ten Artists Exhibition" at Baslow Village Hall this coming weekend. Just have to get together all the prints and cards I've produced.... then relax (until Saturday)

My impression of Barker's Pool, Sheffield

My impression of Barker's Pool Sheffield. It's for our (Heeley Art Club) Exhibition at Gallery 35, Chapel Walk, Sheffield 11th-16th August - come along! While I was finishing this one our younger daughter Sian was producing our next generation - our next prince "Rory". It wasn't easy but both are well! Congratulations to her and Andrew. Our Rory was born in time for the kick off of the new football (soccer in the USA) season at 2.11pm. Love you all 3. x
