I spent a lovely afternoon yesterday in the Scarborough Art Gallery store. Very inspiring! Some little gems in there. Thanks to Karen Snowden the head of collections for talking me through the collection in depth - fascinating insight.... now what will I paint?

WORK IN PROGRESS - 3 heads are better than 1

Work in Progress Heads.

I'm busy working on three heads at the moment. The middle head is a tureen incorporating a ladle which I've disguised as a curl. I'm having fun making these... it feels like a light hearted aside.

WORK IN PROGRESS - Researching Harrogate

1923 Poster - H.G. Gawthorn.
1921 Poster.

I'm starting research on a new project. I want to respond to my time on the AA2A scheme and especially to being in a new town & environment. Harrogate is most famously known for being a Spa Town. People have flocked to the town to take the waters for generations... up until March 2012 that is, when the council responded to an EU regulation and stopped people drinking the waters and turned off the outside tap of the Pump House!
