Spring is definitely here and I have managed to squeeze a little painting time in between finalising my MA project. I love the fact that I can get on my bike with all my painting gear and just cycle along the towpath of the River Cam.
Later I found the lovely spot at Stow cum Quy that my friend Mel introduced me to a few years ago. Quy is prounounced Kwai. Locally the bridge I was standing on is known as The Bridge over the River Quy/Kwai, although officially it is called Quy water.

Four weeks to go until I hand in my work for assessment and that will be the end, except for summer access and our exhibition in September.
Almost three years glorious years of printmaking and how incredible it has been. I keep saying I am going to be dragged kicking and screaming from Anglian Ruskin University’s print room.
Now to get on with some gardening. I am trying to maintain my Dad’s standards, but sadly, it’s not possible at the moment.

This painting is inspired by a walk that I took last year with my good friend Melanie who lives in Cambridge. Knowing how much I love meandering rivers and the light at dusk she drove me out to this area, Stow Cum Quy, in the fens. The sunset was breathtaking.
