I found an ART Studio near home :-)

On my way - near home
Last Friday, reading the local paper, I found an interesting advert "Exhibition of Contemporary Artwork at Fairlands Valley Farmhouse" which is a nice walk from our home. It has been weird because recently I dream of painting again and heard a voice telling me: "paint, paint, paint". I was so happy in my dream, so maybe this was a "sign" ;-)

So I took my camera and walk towards the Farmhouse. On my walk I found inspiring colors and patterns to work with and by entering the house, it feel like entering another era and time, very special. Every artist was open to talk and I had rewarding talks and all of them, encourage me to join the Studios, which I think (i strong feel) i should do.

Tina Reid, a Visual Artist, was the first approaching and very enthusiastic woman. Interesting paintings & drawings which captivate me.

Suzy Drake, Artist & Tutor, attracted me by her floral and African paintings, which are full of color and texture. 

Marlene Tanti, Ceramic Artist, has an extraordinary selection of pieces. Great work.

Fairlands Valley Farmhouse - Studios
Jo Taylor, a Mix-Media Artist, colorful, vibrant, versatile, enthusiastic and open to talk and share.

Joanna Atherton, Pottery Artist, who create pots and lovely nice beads.

And Patrick Joyce, a Ceramic Artist, who invite me to join him sometime to "give-it-a-try" in their Pottery & Ceramics Studio. He was very kind, and show me around. Lovely pieces and Japanese inspired vases.

It was very interesting and great experience!
Here it is the link, to the Studio´s page:

Dónde me senté a meditar...
 El pasado Viernes, leyendo el periódico local, encontré un anuncio interesante "Muestra de Arte Contemporáneo en Fairlands Valley Farmhouse" Lo cual es un bonito paseo desde casa. Es extraño, porque recientemente soñé que pintaba y una vocecita me decía: "pinta, pinta, pinta". Se me veía tan feliz en mi sueño, que quizás ésto sea una "señal" ;-)

Un paseo por el parque
Así que cogí mi cámara de fotos y me fui paseando hacia allí. Durante mi paseo encontré colores que me inspiran de nuevo a crear, incluso cuando entré en la casa, me sentí como si entrara en otra época. 
Hablé con casi todos los  artistas, compartiendo opiniones y experiencias y todos me animaron a unirme al Studio, lo que siento muy fuerte y creo que debería hacerlo.

Ha sido una experiencia maravillosa!
