Mummy and Hamish on the beach at Polkerris on the last Sunday of October last year. We were feeling sad because of Dilly. We had a delicious lunch at the pub and then joined all the families on the beach soaking up the very last vestiges of the summer heat. The sun was bright and in our eyes and everything was in silhouette.
Polkerris always makes me think of summer with the whole family arriving by car, walking or sailing. Always a challenge to get everyone there and back especially the time when the wind picked up and I had Oliver and Livvy in the Mirror with huge waves and no bailer! Hame kept a weather eye on us from his surf board as he wizzed out to sea and back. He had loads of fun!

I gave this painting to my neice Lucy and her husband Paul on the occasion of their wedding. It depicts the steep cornish village of Boddinick, Daphne Du Maurier's house 'Ferryside' and this wonderful old boat that takes people out to sea for 'trips round the bay'N.F.S.
'After milking' I painted this having had an incredibly long, boozy and delicious lunch with Jeffrey Moyer. I spotted the cows through the trees catching the last of the evening sun.It was bought in the Annual silent auction 'Art in the Garden' fundraiser for theWashington CountyHistorical Society
This is the night time view across the harbour from my parents' home in Polruan. The church tower is floodlit until midnight , and the Plough lies above the twinkling town of Fowey which sparkles all night long.
Delicious/cute looking Elysian sheep at the Martin's farm in Greene County, PA. Miriam's delectable supper proved just how scrumptious they really are. This painting was sold last summer in the 'Art in the Garden' fund raising event in Washington, Pa It will be appearing in the next edition of 'Table' with an accompanying article and recipe by Miriam Rubin
