Lafrowda, new work and cows.


 Well last night I managed to finish two new drawings one more minimal than the other, they fit the brief of the book and I will continue with this until the book is finished which is not too far away now. So later I will continue.

Today has been one of our many varied days rooted in and from our 'arts' workshop, so we did a turn at The Lafrowda Festival in St Just. It was a very misty and windy and sometimes quite wet, we delivered a mixed program of juggling, hula hooping and making card crowns and head gear for the young festival folk. This festival has been going for some 25 years and it was very nice to be asked to be part of it. We were on doing our stuff from 11am until 5pm so we are all feeling a bit tired and achy but what good fun it was. and below is a small selection of pics from around the event. I would have taken some pics of the acts but we were very busy at times but safe to say The Mounts Bay Academy put on a great show.

Above is a couple of views of the parade and below a few of the puppets from the parade. The theme of this years festival was Where The Wild Things Are.

As we headed back along the coast road back towards St Ives we were met by the cows heading off to be milked and everything stops as they walk off towards the milking shed from their grazing, then we continued our journey back to town happy and tired.

I am now off to draw and hopefully to watch a program about Chris Ofili on the BBC that has been put back because of the Wimbledon doubles coverage. Back in the day I would have been glued to any big sporting moments but it seems I have moved on to just wanting more and more art.

Cheers all!
