The winter weather made Christmas 2010 sunny, snowy and peaceful. The baby W-P's made it over from Brighton, we made it to Rye and there were many family phone calls to treasure.

Josh and Cliff have (finally) left the building.
It must be time to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Thanks for reading and commenting during 2010, it has been great fun.

Illustration Friday: Mail

Our village Post Office is just up the High Street. I post all my mail order cards and prints in this post box, yesterday it was so full the envelopes were spilling out...

Tinsel and Lightning

Electricity in Herstmonceux is a bit hit and miss. On Wednesday night it went off for a few hours, leaving us with a torch and two dogs for warmth. Today we had a snow storm with thunder bolts and lightning, hailstones the size of gobstoppers, followed by a brilliant blue sky. I have kept the Gallery open whilst hanging my tinsel, cards and planting skinny Father Christmas figures in wine glasses. As you do.

Illustration Friday: Phenomenon

I am fascinated by the phenomenon of 'guerrilla gardening'. All around the world people reclaim small areas of public space to grow plants and veg, plus make seed bombs filled with wild flowers to throw into hard to reach abandoned lots and neglected pieces of land.

As the snow melted our roof leaked, drains blocked and electricity blew. Today, light at the end of this renovation tunnel in the form of our Scutt & Coles Ashdown Check blinds. Created and fitted by the lovely Jenny Hook

Illustration Friday: Prehistoric

In 2011 I am going to illustrate...
To get my head and pencil in the right place I have joined Illustration Friday
This week's theme is 'Prehistoric', I'm Pisces, so it's a fishy fossil monoprint, with a hint of Photoshop.
