July’s joys

Just when I thought I had the right idea about numbers of craft fairs to book ( two a month maybe!) I find myself booked out for four consecutive weekends in July. I didn’t mean to do that but I am looking forward to four new venues at which to show my wares.

One idea that I update each year is my music curve. I choose two tunes each year and I make them into stand-alone pieces. This one is ‘Teddy Bear’s Picnic’ – hence the brown colours of a woodland, my other tune is ‘My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean’. I have been especially creative with that piece as the stave lines curve like a wave. However, the photograph looks very confusing so I when I have worked at my photography I’ll post a picture. This is real music – the notes are the actual tune but not all tunes lend themselves to this particular art form. I work through the music carefully to try and make pieces that are interesting to look at as well as correct.Music curve Teddy Bear's Picnic 1

So I look forward to seeing you at my events:

July 13th – Hanfest, Hanwell, nr Banbury

July 20th/21st – Cosgrove Canal Days nr Milton Keynes

July 27th – Abingdon Craft Market

August 3rd/4th – Shabbington Steam Fair, nr Thame

And I am always happy to discuss a commission with you if there’s that unique something that you would like for someone special.

I am delighted to say that I will be attending Banbury Art Fest on Sunday in Spiceball Park with my colourful glass. The event is part of the Banbury & District Show. The weather is going to be lovely so come along and say Hello. I’m looking forward to meeting up with friends and other artists from the local area. We are a talented bunch! (and modest of course).
