Things Done and Seen

This week I went down to the Minack theatre with my mother on what proved to be a VERY windy day, to see Pericles, a play written probably-mostly-maybe by Shakespeare.  The wind was loud and wild and the plot fast-moving, so I'm not sure I caught all the intricacies, but we enjoyed the play anyway.   I have some more photos, which I may dig out later, but in the meanwhile have a video of the wild waves on the beach at Porthcurno, where we stopped afterwards to give the outbound traffic a chance to clear.

Some Arty Stuffs

I had a couple of paintings in the Heritage art exhibition in Tavistock.  This was a more fun and less deliberately arty event than the one in the Town Hall, and Butcher's Hall is a very different kind of hall.  I think I prefer it, but apparently the art group feel it lacks atmosphere.

And here is a painting from art class this week: The Lion, the Unicorn and a sleepy friend, somewhere, apparently, in Calstock since that dratted viaduct has popped up again!
(We were learning about painting gardens and drifts of flowers.)

There's something not quite right about this, but I don't know what it is or how to fix it. Somehow they look a little bit plonked in place,rather than part of it, I think that's some of it...
