Fowey Regatta is so much fun. I love to get out onto the castle rock and watch the racing around the mark in the harbour mouth as you are so close to the action. It is especially exhilarating when the sea is heaving and the wind is strong as in this painting. The Troys pass so close to each other with their bow sprits like lances and everyone is yelling "'Water! Water!" "Starboard!!! Starboard!!!" I painted it with a palette knife to add to the excitement. Hame and Hal have this painting

We were at Mary Anne and Richard's New Year's Eve party and I spotted Mary Anne looking lovely in this corner of her dining room and I loved seeing her in her green apron against the greeny blue cupboard. She very sweetly let me come back and we toured her greenhouse and had her delicious soup and bread and she sat still so I could paint her.

Tarra turned up at Ray Dunlevy's open studio session with a beautiful sari and had some wine and pizza and fell asleep.

John said I should add a beer and call it 'Boobs butt and beer" and someone could hang it up in their garage. I painted this at Ray Dunlevy's Tuesday evening sessions. Tarra is a fabulous model and friend and I love to paint her
