As it's Tuesday, and I try to make a post on a Tuesday, and I didn't manage it last week, and I still haven't written up the next instalment of the Camper-van tales, I thought I'd better just say hello.
It was Spring-Fling this weekend, that is the event in this area that sees over 70 artist's studios open to the public. This is a large, remote region so you can travel for miles and still not get round a fraction of the studios. I usually pick out a few that look interesting in the brochure and take in any others that are near at the same time. This year, however, I didn't have to do that because two friends were exhibiting and so we built our itinerary around them. On Saturday we went to see Maggie Ayres (Kim's wife) and Rogan Ayres of cake baking fame. Maggie's work was gorgeous, I only wish I'd had some cash (not to mention space) to buy something. Luckily Rogan's wares were a bit more affordable so we bought scones (with rather sinful chocolate chunks in them) and biscuits, all of which were so delicious we didn't need to find even a temporary space for them. We'd have bought more but he'd sold out of cake by the time we got there, which wasn't particularly late.
On Sunday we went to see Liz who is a sculptor, and a very fine one indeed. Again, I couldn't afford a bronze but I did take this photo of her garden wall. Wouldn't you just die for a wall like this?
