AndyKnillArt News from PAW 2017 Day 13

Thursday 8th June

Well a dry but breezy start so more grass cutting before opening up. Today I had 13 visitors, many walkers caught out by the conditions on the way out to the Tout. Wet and breezy. The weather did dry up for a period. The studio was so cool I even went back into the house to change, shorts and sandals were exchanged for warm trousers, welly socks, Wellington boots and another sweatshirt. It was a delight to talk with visitors again and emphasised the thing that has made PAW so special discussing my art, photography, reason for leaving my first career, mental health and art, and my medium of choice – Promarkers, there was definitely some pen envy today.


I spent time today on updating my accounts, editing and deleting photos as required. I also produced three new original cards and sold the one of St James’ church in Kingston village. I also welcomed Sue McLean and we both worked and chatted.


This evening the family went into the village to vote. Only three days of PAW to go and then collecting works from Etches and Rollington. My studio, well the photo canvases will return indoors, and I will discuss ideas on how to improve the studio so it is comfortable to work in. The door will not remain open everyday and this will help.

If you are able to and haven’t visited so far I will welcome you for a visit on Friday, Saturday or Sunday. Been before? Revisits welcomed.
