This is my 5th column entry in the Cambs Times & Wisbech Standard, in print today. In case you have difficulty reading the text size in the top image, it reads as follows:
"I was kindly invited to join the art group at The Bowthorpe Centre in Wisbech last week, where I received a warm, friendly welcome and a hot cuppa on arrival.
While members around me slid large sheets of paper and canvasses onto their easels I reached for my sketchbook and captured a few of them ‘in action’.
We enjoyed a very informal, relaxing morning, tapping our feet to the sound of ‘Seasick Steve’ tracks playing in the background, a guest singer on the Jules Holland show I’d never heard of before, and getting to know one another a little.
The small garden boasts numerous pots full of sprouting bulbs that were fortunate enough to bathe in some rare sunshine by early afternoon as I sketched the daffodils.
I’d like to thank the members of Bowthorpe art group for their warm hospitality."
