Bea arrived yesterday and we all celebrated our 36th wedding anniversary round at Jackie's with champagne and chicken pie from Bairds Farm Shop. A lovely evening. It monsooned off and on all day and our green is starting to revive.
We went to the RA Summer Exhibition with Bea and Jacks today. It was fun.
I loved the Elizabeth Blackadders and the Mary Feddens, but my especial overall favourite is
EARTH SPACE-FALLEN BRANCHES-INNER WOOD-PEMBROKESHIRE
oil, Maurice Sheppard
That would be the one I would have taken home had they let me choose. It had already sold, and was £995, which is very reasonable for a Summer Exhib picture.
Now we are safely back home and settling down after a fish and chip supper.
