Our new studio was delivered on Tuesday and the crew came to build it on Wednesday. The day started bright and sunny but went downhill from around midday with heavy showers and hailstones. Luckily they managed to get the roof finished before it rained. All we need now is electricity and a coat of paint including varnishing the floor with three coats of varnish, I wanted it so I can paint more so I suppose I can’t complain!

Another sketch from our visit to Corfe Castle yesterday. This is West Street looking away from the castle. I wonder how many times this view has been painted and photographed over the years?

Watching the boys trot along in front of us yesterday when we took them for a walk reminded me of their favourite books “Were going on a bear hunt” soI will call this picture “Bear Hunt”

We are having new fences and gates to make the garden dog safe. Dorset Fencing put in both pairs of gates on Thursday and fenced the back garden on Friday. Next week they are finishing the fencing in the front. They have done a great job and the lads deserved a tea break.
