Glossop Art Society

Had a brilliant evening with Glossop Art Society on Feb.25. Billy Bye showed videos and slides and I gave a ” talk” to the lovely folks at the group. I learned quite a bit from them as well. Great evening all round . We had time for some late night Bye & How photography on the way home too.received_10206083040460357

Poem from DE Siddon after live painting at Whitepeak House Gallery 12.2.16.   Upon and idle hour as foot and minddid ramble free, on some singular aspectmy eye did fall.

Ancient spoil deep delved and set in place,my way did bound by dry stone wall.

Familiar the bands of limestone grey our native bone our sacred dirt.

What jewelled obsidian lustous lay, the razors edge of parkland chert.

No flint so hard but you would grind, nor hold edge so keen as thou could’st keep.

For shame here stacked by patient hand, a barrier to errant sheep.

Art Unplugged

I had the joy of live painting while Toby Hay and Jim Ghedi played guitar last night at the Whitepeakhouse Gallery Bakewell. A lovely intimate evening in superb surroundings.
