St Matthews and Springfields



This is the double spread I created while dropping off my paintings to the annual art exhibition at St Matthew's Church, Sutton Bridge in Lincolnshire last week. St Matthew's, the only remaining flintstone church in Lincolnshire, is stunning and I only wish I'd had more time to sketch it during my visit. However, I did get a very quick doodle before driving home and enhanced my spread by sticking part of the promotional poster next to it which includes a lovely sketch of the church by an unknown artist.

Before delivering the art work I visited Springfields, an outlet shopping centre in Spalding, where my eldest managed to pick up some bargains and my Mum managed to lose her gold watch! Luckily some kind woman found it and handed it to the shop assistant making our panicked search short and sweet. Again, not much time to sketch but managed just enough to record our trip in my journal.

How wonderful that your Mom got her lost watch back so quickly. Makes you feel good about your fellow man doesn't it. Lovely sketches... even your paint drops seem planned... they are aren't they.

Lovely sketches - you've used your limited time and the bits & pieces of your day in such an effective way.
