Column Week 23


This is my newspaper column, in print today in the Cambs Times and Wisbech Standard.






I was invited to participate in the Rose Fair again this year, an annual event in the heart of Wisbech. On Wednesday I parked myself outside the Museum on my travel chair, displayed some of my creations on the railings and pavement, sat back and enjoyed the sunshine with my latte. I was fortunate to catch Leverington School Molly Dancers in my sketchbook quickly before the rain set in and I was forced to pack away in record time. Such a shame, I seem to remember the same thing happening last year.

On Friday I returned with my Mum for a casual stroll. St Peter’s Church had their usual flower arrangement exhibition which never fails to impress. It smelled and looked divine, I would love to have stopped and sketched a while there but it is such a popular exhibit that it‘s difficult to find the space. Out of the church and back into the sunshine, we visited Wisbech market a while before I snuck into Terry’s Dinner to pick up a take-away cheese burger and chips with a latte which was a bargain at £3.75 and tasted delicious!

So are Molly dancers similar to Morris dancers, withthe bells, stick and ribbons?? I love the drawings. I need to start doing the quick sketches! Yours are always so full of life!

I am inspired by your blog every single day! I have nominated you for an award on my blog. If you don't want to participate, that is fine too!

What fabulous artwork to put in the newspaper and we're all so lucky to be able to see it here too. That Georgian building is superb. x
