Busylizzie Art at The Rectory Care Home has embarked on a new set of signs! The manager’s bid to make this home a kind of boutique care home has really taken off with this recently begun project… Angela’s vision is that the whole feel of the home is special, and feels not like an institution […]

Seascape…

Moving into a new ‘old’ house, one that is a project, to say the least, is an amazing “blank canvas” opportunity… Yesterday I began and completed a giant wave across three canvases to make a huge wall-filler for the bathroom… Pretty pleased with end result… emulsion, chalk, tempera powder and acrylic paint.

Garden Exploration…

Does Taunton want another Taunton Live Performing and Creative Arts Festival?

The few days immediately following any large event feels flat for the organisers, as the energy expended during the preparation and staging of it begins to be noticed…and the aftermath of Taunton Live 2017 Arts Festival was no different for Jenny or Liz, its co-organisers. Then, when a week or so has passed, it begins […]
