On my way…
Where has the winter gone? I am really happy to see the unfurling leaves, hear the birds sing, and the last two days have been pure boating joy with the sun really making its presence known, but (only a little but)… just one more month of preparation time wouldn’t have gone amiss! I’m all caught up now though, and another Spring and Summer season of travelling and trading is underway for TheArtBoat 2018.
The first floating market of the year at Market Haywood was a great start to the season, and the lovely people who came to see and support the floating traders were not deterred by the rain and copious amounts of mud. The Art Boat is presently on its way to the RCTA Floating Market at Berkhamsted, with a couple of stops for a “PopUp” art gallery on route. This is the schedule so far, (Please note that any PopUps are dependant upon available space and weather).

Brand New Paintings
Although the Art Boat hasn’t travelled very far over the past couple of weeks, lots of business has been going on inside and I have two new paintings that are travelling with me. They will be displayed for the first time at Stoke Bruerne this weekend.
Looking forward to catching up with you somewhere on the cut.
Until next time…Jan
