Puzzles and frustrations of a blogging beginner

OK – After what seems like forever, I am still learning how to blog.  Yesterday I learned that galleries don’t seem to work very well.  The pictures looked small and uninteresting and didn’t display at all in facebook.  Just a big blank space – which did have a link to the gallery page, but it took ages to load.    Now I understand why people post one photograph at  time.  So, please be patient with me as I learn.


New Year is here ….

Just back from an inspirational visit to the Borders.  I have lots of new ideas to develop and some projects to finish.  I will be posting work as I go along, so keep watching my blog to keep up with me     …..     🙂


Great exhibition at Hallgreen Castle as part of NEOS – thanks to all who visited and who took part 🙂


I have just spent two weeks recharging my batteries

I have just spent two weeks recharging my batteries and getting inspired down in the Borders amongst some beautiful flowers and greenery.  Now have the basis for a new series of work, good timing with NEOS just round the corner.  Watch this space!!
