We all went to stay in Robin Hoods Bay at half term. It was so cold – I slept in a hat on the first night! It was all frost and bright sun though, and very inspiring. I’m working on a commission of Whitby, but want to paint two pieces from Robin Hoods Bay too. Hattie and Daniel and I ate fish and chips wrapped up in a blanket on the beach. It was wonderful.

Daniel took these nice photos. My photos tend to be functional!

I haven’t scanned them yet, but I have now finished 5 pieces for the Brighouse exhibition! I’ve had 8 pieces on the go for so long, and suddenly they’re all coming together. I have only the stitching to go. That’s the bit I hate. It’s very unsettling running a needle through a painting that’s taken months!. My Bernina and I have been known to fall out…

I shall post one or two of them shortly.

  1. Love the hat Kate – looking forward to a sneak peak at the new pieces at the weekend too. Yipeee.
