So sorry I wasn't able to come to Affinity last Thursday but I was so tired after a full on day at an Angie Hughes workshop and then an hour's drive home in torrential rain. I hope those of you who did go had an enjoyable evening.
Having spoken to some of you, I realise that though you have looked at one or more of the inspirations – Holbein, Flowers beginning with H and Thomas Hardy – you have not had time to explore and develop things for your Ideas Book. Most of us are at a critical stage with our City & Guilds work and of course this must take precedence. So, I thought it best if we just worked with these three inspirations for this month and next month and start with 3 new inspirations at the July meeting. Hope this is OK with everyone.
Unfortunately I won't be able to come to the June Affinity meeting either as I will be on holiday. However, Katy is manning the fort and will be bringing along all her African artefacts – so one new inspiration 'Africa' to join the existing 3 mentioned above. I am very sorry to be missing out on this but perhaps someone will kindly take photos for me so that I can catch up when I return.
For our July meeting, I wondered if you would all like to do something a little different? What I had in mind was for us to meet up somewhere between Kettering and Northampton where we can sketch or take photographs and then hopefully visit a local hostelry for food and beverage? If this is something that appeals, could you please put your thinking caps on and give me some ideas as to where would be suitable to meet. I'm thinking perhaps a village type of area where we can park in the pub car park, wiz round doing our sketching or photography and then back to the pub to eat. Oh and there is an inspiration from all this, it will be L for Landscape. I'll tell you the others when we all meet up.
Look forward to seeing you all soon and please have a think about where we could meet for the July meeting and email me any ideas.
