The stone boat ( the ‘amis reunie’) is a replica of a trading ketch which was destroyed in the estuary some time ago. It’s a great symbol for the allegory that was The Prisoner – filmed in the sixties. It sits calmly outside the Hotel below the Italianate village, but has nowhere it can go to.

The Italianate village of Portmeirion in Wales can be magical, especially when the visitors retreat. Now back to the box set of the Prisoner and to make use of the sketches.

St Michael’s is at the heart of Highgate’s community. As well as being the parish church it encourages local involvement and hosts activities such as book groups, concerts. Of course a busy time awaits over the next few weeks. It was a joy to be commissioned to paint the church!

Enough sunshine to paint outside still – but even little Nell was feeling the cold. Looks like the Lauderdale House renovation will be finished in time for the exhibition in November.
