It's soon time to take down my exhibition in Dartmouth.
I was very happy to sell one of my big paintings!

2015 ended with a fantastic family christmas.

It was a crazy few days, noisy, busy but so lovely having everyone together!
After everyone had returned home, we spent a couple of days of quietness in a beautiful place.

I enjoyed the view while Middle Daughter looked for kelp to use in a recipe.

New year's Eve was my birthday and we had a day out at Lyme Regis. It had rained most of the day but just before sunset the sky cleared and I was rewarded with a beautiful sky.

 What a lovely end to the year.

Happy new year to you!
Thankyou for visiting my blog. ♥ 
I wish you the very best for 2016, may it bring you everything you hope and dream. xx

Happy New year to you Jess. I have loved following your artistic year and very pleased your exhibition went well. Lovely photos too. I had a lovely holiday there years ago. Brought back many happy memories.

I absolutely LOVE your first photo. SO cosy and reminds me of all the little stores tucked in together in the heart of Scarborough. Beautiful art as well, Jess. Wishing you a beautiful, creative 2016! :)
