So how was Plymouth?

My visit to Plymouth, looking back as I try to catch up on work at Itzac, went quite well including some good PR; the bad news was getting up early to be with Gordon Sparks on BBC Radio Devon the good news, Gordon  Sparks Sparkie is great fun to be interviewed by,

There will also be a a piece in the Plymouth Evening Herald ~ (circulation about 250,000) by Tristan Nicholls of whom some including David Folley say “the best journalist on the Herald”  about the new large marine painting Plymouth Cattewater and the invitation to exhibit next year at the European Parliament in Brussels. RPCYC_IMG_7648_d.jpg

The photo here is a different view of the the Cattewater, River Plym, Royal Plymouth Corinthian Yacht Club from which I used to sail in former family days and looks towards the east shore and my former home at Plymstock.

Besides visiting familiar places and there is more to tell!

Today I was in Cornwall and West Devon.

The weather has been typical, rain, strong winds and some calm beautiful days too.
Sploshing_IMG_7650_wp.jpgThis day started with a swim at 07.00. at Plymouth Central Park pool before going on to the Art Centre at Kelly Bray, Callington in Cornwall (Tel:01579 383523, www.artistsmaterialsonline.co.uk) .

I have been a customer for over 30 years at the Art Centre, formally Westward Art Frames, which I have seen evolve into a thriving business with an excellent selection of materials and probably unbeatable framing service; Jen and Roz Roz_n_Jen_IMG_7657_wp.jpgwho now look after the shop and framing respectively are much better looking than Ian and Darren!
