During my sorting (making a total mess) of the shedudio, I found some solar powered outdoor lights I purchased for almost nothing from Lidl some time ago. I followed the instructions until it showed a diagram of the on/off switch. This is encased in rubber so how you know when it is actually on or off ....? Anyway I pressed it a few times and then left.
Later that night the DP was watching out for an aurora. Which everyone else saw. But we got this.
This morning I finally got to grips with registering for NEOS. This stands for North East Open Studios. An annual event.
Every year Artists in the North East of Scotland open up their studios. I have exhibited my work as part of a group for NEOS.
Then in 2015 I went solo in the shedudio. It was great fun, although tiring. With my health issues I never thought I would do it again. But - I have been talked into doing it again.
Hence the big sort out and the desperate search for a joiner to insulate and board the interior of the shedudio so I have a proper hanging space.
This afternoon saw me visiting my favourite cafe at the Dunes Golf Centre.
Well, any excuse.
I met my fellow artist Marie Buchan. Do check out her facebook page, Marie Buchan Artist. Her studio is in St Combs just up the road from me. St Combs was a fishing village. Marie's studio backs on to the beach.
Mary J Torrance is also in the village of St Combs. She paints and is also a sculptor. We 3 are the only artists in the Fraserburgh area that are to be part of NEOS this year. Marie and I were plotting various strategies to get people to visit our studios. The area we live in is often called 'The Hidden Corner'. North of Aberdeen ? Stagecoaches.
So I may bore you over the next few months.
I just hope no rat appears during that week.
