I've just got back from a few days away on the lovely Isle of Wight. I have gathered new material in the form of sketches, added to my collection of seaglass, seaweed and pebbles, walked on different beaches, taken in new views and eaten some fabulous pistachio ice-cream...(it really was worth writing about ;o) ). It was a lovely break.

I even went on a couple of touristy trips. One of them was to a beautiful place called Butterfly World which inspired a couple of sketches and some thoughts for a new set of work - a break from my usual. The ideas are percolating and like steam from a hot coffee don't have a solid form just yet, they need a little time.

Now, lucky girl that I am I need to get ready for a trip to the lovely Shell Bay on Studland which I believe many, many, many years ago was connected to the Isle of Wight and time and tide have erroded the chalk to create Poole Harbour/Bay. The holiday hasn't ended just yet.
