Be A Good Girl...

'Straight back.
Shoulders down.
Be a good girl.'
(Something tells me that this young lady isn't going to do as she's told!)
...And I don't blame her!
I'm really enjoying preparing for my Mrs B's Paper and Collaging Weekend at Hope and Elvis on May 5th and 6th 2018.
(And if she isn't out gallivanting and causing shenanigans, this naughty lass might be coming along for the party!)

Boggle Hole Arty Adventures...

A couple of weeks ago, the Art Foundation students ventured out to their residential trip to Boggle Hole, North Yorkshire.
We stayed at the amazing YHA Boggle Hole.
Boggle Hole was the best class room ever...
and I had the best desk!
Landscape painting...
...with a sea weed brush!
Inside, the hostel was so cosy and decorated with such care.
There were even resident Boggles!
Free donkey rides!
The best hot chocolates!
( Thank you Alice for organising such an amazing trip.)
The students even printed special 'Boggle My Hole' t- shirts.
Marshmallows and a camp fire!
The next day we went fossil hunting with Hidden Horizons, it was absolutely brilliant!
I felt so proud of the students, they worked so hard and we had such a great time.
After spending the morning on the beach, we walked to Robin Hood's Bay.
My heart burst with pride to see the students papping a rusty door!
I did a spot of gnome papping!
We all wanted this little house for an art studio!
In the evening there was lots of arty goings on.
On my last day I went down to the beach to see the sun rise,and I can't describe how beautiful it was.
(I might have even shed a little tear or two!)

I hope you enjoyed our Art Foundation trip, time for another hot chocolate methinks!
And I'd just like to say a huge thank you to everyone at the YHA Boggle Hole, the whole stay was truly amazing and you made us all feel so welcome.

Mrs B's 'Seasons' Tide' online exhibition will soon take place!

'Seasons' Tide' Online Exhibition:

Just to let you know when my little exhibition will take place.
Thank you so much for all the supportive and generally lovely comments I've been sent as I've been painting these over the last few months.

Passing Storm...

When the storm clouds are approaching,
take the birds out of the trees
and give them shelter.
It will soon pass by.

Wishing you all a very lovely Sunday my friends x

The Queen of Midsummer...

The birds decorated her gown with flowers
and grasses.

They gave her their most colourful shimmering feathers,
 and asked the beautiful dragonflies
to hover around her skirt.

For then she could be the Queen of Midsummer.
