Sorry it’s been a while since the last blog (can you believe – February) but life comes along some time and things have to go by the wayside.  However, I am back, fully holidayed and recovering from surgery on my hand, which prevented me from typing for a while.  Excuse any spelling errors as I get used to typing agin.

You will be interested to know that the Kircudbright Exhibition and the Exhibition at the Lillie Gallery were both successful.  Liza is now packing up to take 77•  North to Orkney on Saturday 26th to Wednesday 6th September.

If you live near, or are holidaying on Orkney please go along – the PV is on Saturday 26th August between 2pm and 4pm , all are welcome.
