Bovisand cafe

Cafe and shop at Bovisand Bay, sitting next to the car park above the two parts of the bay. The cafe and shop used to be separate but have been joined together so you can explore a range of beach wear, body boards, sun lotion, crafts, etc, etc on one side and the cafe on the other. It seems like a nice set up. The people there were friendly. I think we will go again if we can.

I hope that they get good custom now that covid, which is still on the increase in the UK, is at least milder. One day we must get over it? I hope so.

Glass necklaces

I’ve just dropped off my glass necklaces at Etruria Industrial Museum. I hope that people will be impressed with them and I might make a few sales. The museum is about steam and fire, so there is a bit of a link between it and fued glass? I find art and jewellery making is a bit hit and miss. Just because I like it doesn’t mean anyone else will! And no one has much spending money anymore. So even if the would like something they aren’t necessarily going to buy it. Ah well, self belief is important when you’re an artist. X

Getting paintings back

_20200531_215554

Sad day today.

I’d had some of my paintings on display at a lovely art shop in Stoke called Serendiparty. It was displaying local artists work, and also art workshops for a creative experience. Unfortunately the lock down happened soon after it had opened up, so the people didn’t visit and it’s had to close.

This is so sad. The person who ran it is called Phil. He really wanted to bring something new to the town. He is still creating his own artworks and has decided to work from home. I wish him the very best. He deserves it for trying hard to make the place work.
