My summer was a mixture of very special times and very sad times, looking after my lovely, wonderful Mum who was taken ill whilst staying with us here in Pembrokeshire and could not return to her home in the North of England. Sadly, she passed away on November 3rd and now I have to rebuild my life without her. I shall never stop missing her.
I am now in my first year of a Fine Art Degree and having missed most of this terms work, am determined to catch up. I am so loving the challenge of drawing and painting, the self discovery and the freedom of art beyond the lens. I am fortunate enough to have some of my work from my June exhibition, which Mum saw and admired (of course she loved it – she was my Mum), on show now in Oriel Q, in the Winter Open. It has given me such a boost. The opening is tomorrow, and we hope that everyone who can, will come and join in the opening, have some Mulled Wine and support this amazing gallery by buying some of the 100 pieces that are on exhibit there.
I shall try my best to keep my blog active now – those of you who have followed in the past must wonder if ever I shall – but I am going to give it one last, best shot.
