Off to the Lake District

On Saturday I’m off on a bi-annual trip to renew acquaintance with the awe – and Art – inspiring Lake District. I tried once to create a ‘Society for Lake District painters who don’t live in the Lake District’ hoping in some small way to make up for the impossibility of ever belonging, on geographical as well as artistic grounds, to the Lake District Artists Society.

There must be loads of visiting painters who would be interested! Surely? How to reach them? I live in hopes that we could stage a sort of  exhibition or Salon des Refuses( That’s a French ‘e’ with an accent, nothing to do with rubbish!)

Here are a few previous efforts:
