Then we went to another artist who also lives on the same road as us. She was an old woman who produced more traditional kind of art. (Lynda did more abstract stuff largely based on the human form). Not so much my cup of tea but interesting none the less. I liked her sketchbook. It had ink drawings of places she'd been and it inspired me to do something like that. It's a great way of appreciating a place while you're there.
Then we wandered further afield to this big house where 6 artists were based. The garden was pretty big and lead down to a lake in the park. It was a beautiful place to wander round whether there was art there or not. It had a giraffe made out of metal:

I chatted to this Canadian artist who was telling me about this cycle journey he'd made from the southern most point of England to the northern most point of Scotland. I'd love to do that. Took him 18 days. About 50 miles a day.
I didn't think much to his artwork but I ended up speaking to him for a while. : )
