We were on our way to the Strand Quay Gallery in Rye, but got distracted. It was love at first sight, a table with green legs and a rocking chair with a curved back. This week without my own Gallery to tend I have managed to keep incredibly busy, banking, packing greeting cards, talking with framers, potential new stockists and publishers. A 'Hastings Hut' was sold at the Strand Quay and an Arts Hut customer bought the red teapot painting by mail order. The weather is fabulous, ideal for painting in the garden.
