Welcome to the first spangly edition of Artwatchguide to Museums and Galleries covering Lewes, Eastbourne and Wealden. My painting of Thorndean Clover and a Funky Chicken pinny made it onto the front cover (top right) and Arts Hut is featured on page 9, my favourite number. Herstmonceux has its own cute mini map. What's not to love?
This weekend the local Open Studio season hits fever pitch with Artwave Festival Lewes District and Coastal Currents Hastings and Rother.

My window displays aim to keep the citizens of The People's Republic of Herstmonceux entertained. Yesterday was a funny day:
Three teenagers walked past and burst into song "How about you, you, you?".
A Dad "Have you seen that tea towel, now that's very good isn't it?" Bemused toddler, no reply.
A Gran who gave her friends the full history of the original Keep Calm and Carry On Poster.
You will note its the red tea towel getting all the attention, we have sold 14 in the first two weeks. Mr PWP and the lovely Nina are delighted, if a little smug.

Medieval Festival - the Dent family and mini PWP's will be visiting. Mr PWP and I have been to Lewes, dropping off my seascapes at Ochre Framing encouraging Mr Dogsby to sit on the counter at Gardener and Cook and checking out what delights Cook can provide, to fit in our oven and be popped on the table this weekend without me breaking into a sweat. We are renovating our upstairs kitchen, so potentially seven adults, two babies and two hounds will be dining in my studio.

I write down all customer suggestions in the big diary which is also my sales book, exhibition timetable and birthday record. Greeting cards with words on such as 'Thank You', 'Congratulations' etc have been asked for again and again. Whilst most of the artists exhibiting at Arts Hut live in the surrounding villages, I threw my net a bit wider to find an independent illustrator with a range of cards that made me smile and include special events & blue spot watering cans.

Customer: "Can you guarantee you will be amazingly famous and die young?"
Me: "I have aspirations to be amazingly famous and I smoked a lot, for a long time, so assume I will die quite young"
Customer buys sketch.
How would you have answered his question...?
