And then the next morning I'll be up bright and early to drive to Wyken Hall, just north of Bury St Edmunds in West Suffolk, for Plants and Crafts in the gardens of Wyken Hall.
The beautiful Leaping Hare restaurant and shop will also be open as well as the garden and surrounding walks around Wyken Hall. So it's a full day of treats!!

Flowers and pots

Alongside printmaking I am exploring painting and have signed up to Gabriella Buckingham's 'Experimental Still Life' course, which is online and self-paced. I've found it to be packed with inspiration for colour and composition which can be applied to printmaking as well as painting.

Practice practice practice! As an incentive joined in the twice-yearly Strada Easel challenge to paint form life every day for a month and post the resulting paintings on Instagram. So, during September 2024 I painted small still lifes on scrap cardboard. This coincided with the weeks I was visiting my Mum to sit by her and watch her long life come to an end.

At first the paintings seemed like a chore …

flowers and pots - A

… they became a daily habit …

flowers and pots - B

… the ceramic vessels and flowers were like characters on a stage, spending time with these small scenes was like therapy …

flowers and pots - C

… the daily painting, especially the monochrome hurried ones, became a necessity.

flowers and pots - D

I'd like to say I've continued the habit, I haven't. But I am beginning to miss it and I will do it again.
