Mistakenly posted on Picture from St Ives!

Have just completed a post intended for Sea-Blue-Sky-Abstracts on my other blog 'Picture from St Ives'.  Please click here to read - honestly, could I get much more absent minded?!

Glorious in St Ives today, with sun, sun, sun, all day long on The Wharf - hordes of people enjoying themselves on the Foresand.  Tomorrow (Wednesday 20 April) is my day to work at Art Space Gallery, so why not pop in and say 'Hello'? x


  1. must be all of that beautiful sunshine putting a spell on you~!

    always enjoy stopping by for a look at your latest work.


  2. Beautiful painting! :-) We're having sun here in East Anglia too! xo

  3. If I could just transport myself to that strand for a leisurly morning walk, or afternoon stroll. so lovely

  4. Libby and Sybille - so lovely to hear from you, I have been unhappy for for the past 2 weeks or so and have not felt like blogging, but will get back to following you all soon. x

    Julie, the word 'strand' takes me back to a time when my grandparents were alive and the part of the Harbour beach known as 'Market Strand' in St Ives, before Wharf Road was built. Will visit soon, Lesley. x

  5. Have to say hello from here - the chances of me ever getting to St. Ives are nil! Much as I would like to.

    Enjoy the sun - its tropical even up here!

  6. Hi Gilly

    Glad to know that it's nice and warm where you are - have a lovely Easter weekend. x

  7. Coo'ee Lesley! Sorry to hear you've been down in the dumps...hope things are better for you now...I have been shameful in my blogging tardiness lately!

    Beautiful beautiful work as ever and wish I was closer to see it in the flesh

    Please forgive my tardy blog commenting!
    Happy Easter xx

  8. Mimi, it's lovely to hear from you - thanks for your support - I'm keeping busy, painting etc and trying not to be a wimp. Hope the sun is shining where you are. x
