A Busy Autumn

I have been very busy since the last blog post, initially with Devon Open Studios - thanks to everyone who came, it was good to get such positive feedback on the work so far.  This spurred me on with the huge task of editioning the prints from the first 26 days of the walk. I should have them all finished by the end of this month, then I can concentrate on larger works.


Devon Life Magazine published an article about the project in their November issue. Many thanks to the editor Jane Fitzgerald, and to Vicky Maxwell who has been writing all my articles.

In the last three weeks I have also managed to fill in the last of the gaps caused by bad weather during the main walk earlier this year. The section of coastline between Hartland Quay and Bude is one of the highlights of the whole path, it is a hard days walk crossing ten river valleys.  Due to time and daylight limitations we only managed four valleys but the coastline and the cloudscapes were simply stunning.

Last weekend I walked from Lamorna to Mousehole with fellow printmaker Maggie SmithIt was sunny but very, very muddy - by the end of the walk we had mud up to our knees. We saw a friendly seal at Lamorna Cove and a pod of dolphins off Point Spaniard.

Thanks very much to Nick and Rachel at Castallack Farm - a brilliant B & B which I would heartily recommend.
