gathering inspiration

I was away last week walking and cycling in beautiful Pembrokeshire. It has some of the most stunning coastpaths which are protected by the National Trust. Definitely an inspiring few days.

 Bronze Autumn, a small painting in my studio this week.

 It's also the home of some wonderful local businesses. We visited Hiut Denim in Cardigan, the factory unit is fascinating....and I love my new jeans! We also had coffee at the coolest bakery in Wales, Bara Menyn. Not only do they make delicious bread, they serve up a mean lunch or baked treat. We always pop into Melin Tregwynt too, a place full of the history of the area, a working weaving factory, and beautiful and sturdy contemporary Welsh rugs to buy.
