I lived near Gillian Ayres in North Cornwall and met her both at my place and at her and Harry’s – a lovely, earthy, intelligent woman.
wow, lucky you, sometimes I hanker to be in an area with a greater artistic population, Cornwall, London, New York or wherever, but then I would lose my muse, the rugged wild beauty here. The artistic isolation (relative of course but true) takes its toll but has many compensations
Ah well, you can always bake a cake and eat it. 🙂 Are you enjoying your expanded studio space Liz? Any warmer and drier?
the studio is just wonderful, warm, dry(mostly), spacious, inviting, user friendly, messy, full to bursting with new work, light, always ready and welcoming, quiet, resonant, peaceful, womblike, tardislike, accomodating, comforting……I am so lucky 🙂
