Plant of the Month
Tulipa Batalinii Apricot Jewel
I planted these tulips four years ago and they are settling in nicely returning each year and increasing in number. They form part of my Spring Bed, situated near between the front door and the gate so it can be seen and enjoyed easily.
I have closed my only remaining art class. A hard decision but I was struggling a bit to keep both the Art Group and my involvement with Artisans Corner and decided to focus on my own painting. Artisans Corner has given me a real chance to do this and I want to take full advantage of it.
My students have been great, fully supporting my decision and as a "goodbye gift" presented me with a tree, a Morello Cherry.
It will be a reminder of my lovely students and the many happy hours we have all spent together. I know I will miss them vey much but I am also confident I have made the right decision, Artisans Corner is a unique opportunity.
The Lighthouse, Roath Park, Cardiff
I have produced a new print of the lighthouse in Roath Park, Cardiff. The lighthouse is in memory of Captain Scott and bears a memorial plaque in his honour. Roath Park is a lovely Cardiff feature and I will be using this image together with my images of Cardiff Castle and Cardiff Bay for a new triple picture. These "triptych" paintings are proving very popular at Artisans Corner and this one will be in the shop on 1st May.
