Mrs B's 'Adventures In Abstraction' Weekender at Hope and Elvis: Saturday....

'Adventures In Mixed Media' was the focus for the Saturday's workshop at the wonderful Hope and Elvis.

There were lots of techniques and materials to play with...

Here's Miss Debs, getting her paint on!

Here's the demo table.

Look at all those gorgeous paintings emerging...

Art started to appear on every available surface...

I love watching the process...

Mrs B's table of bits and bobs.
There may have been a little bit of cake eating too!
(Thank you Mum and Jean from the village).

And then all the beautiful finished pieces started to be gathered on the 'top table'...

And then the table was full!


I had such a good time, full of laughter and creativity and paint.

Thank you Miss Debs and Sam for all your hard work, and thank you Louise for having me over again at your beautiful studio.

I'm looking forward to next April all ready!

Away Away...

I've been so fortunate in having the pleasure of seeing the 'Away Away' exhibition by Julie Arkell at the Harley Gallery in Worksop.

I have been a huge fan of Julie Arkell's work for a long time and once attended one of her workshops at Hope and Elvis.

When I walked in, there were so many of her little folk and creatures I half expected them to turn around at look at me.

It was spell binding.


The hotel housed the little brooches that were for sale.

Just look at the papier-mâché twigs!

Knitted shadows...

Love this so much.

I hope you enjoyed having a look around too, thanks for keeping me company.
