Spring is nearly upon us at last!




My February Adventures


February started in Scratby near Great Yarmouth, with Jane, we stayed in this lovely chalet looking out at the sea. It was a wonderful few days. I walked along the beach for a couple of hours every day, it was so refreshing. I love the photo of the sea blowing bubbles on the sand. A textured piece in the making! So I did  find a lot of inspiration and am working on some new pieces which I will show later in the year.
