Hard as nails

 It's our Open Studios this weekend so lots to do, trying to put up paintings but these walls are rock hard. Yesterday I bent at least 12 different nails but after a visit to the ironmongers I have discovered a new type of small masonry nail and it worked. So off to a good start this morning until I found some paintings I wanted to hang have small strange spots that might be mould, I will have to google it and see if it will get worse. So now more rescue work needed but I need to find what has caused them.
Tuesday I found out that the "studio in the wood" can be a very scary place, lightning strikes directly above, made it feel like a cell. I didn't dare step outside. I think it stirred up the energy though as ideas flowed and I did something drastic the next day after months or maybe even years of procrastinating. I'll let you know how it goes later.


  1. Hi Jill, It was good to meet you today, and I enjoyed looking around all the art studios. I will definitely be looking out for you next time I visit the park. I am looking forward to viewing your sketchbook online at the sketchbook project.
