Gorgeous, Talented and Cornish! (Ed’s not bad either)Picture of bunting in the harbour textile art print by Cat Rowe

Last weekend textile artist Cat Rowe from Redruth returned to stay with us, booked for 3 nights and stayed for 4 . We told them where the quietest beaches were, blessed with good weather, they relaxed and returned every day with beach treasure, inspiration for her coastal art.

 

This is just one example of her fabulous pictures, prints and cards. Check Cat out at:-www.textileillustration.co.uk

Comes in many different formsPhotograph of black and white wooden noticeboard in the stairwell at Valley Cottage B&B Portmellon

We had two sisters from Switzerland staying with us, they were walking the coast path towards the Lizard and wanted to visit the Lost Gardens of Heligan. They left behind a magazine and we spotted this saying, which we’re trying to adopt, so out came the old floorboards, blackboard paint and stencil brushes.

Our new paintingPhoto of painting  & sculptures at Valley Cottage B&B Portmellon

Went to the intimate Flying Colours exhibition by local artists at Gorran Haven, we were really tempted by three paintings from local artist Julia Clough, but chose this one because it sums up everything we love about Cornwall. For more information about Julia, see her Facebook page: Julia Clough Artist Cornwall.
