The View from Sygun Copper Mine

....as painted by first Jon and then Emily :-))


We visited Sygun this time last year on our holiday to Snowdonia and Jon and Emily's acrylic paintings are based on this photo we took of the beautiful view at the mine exit.


This morning hubby and daughter made some scrumptious lemon muffins with green icing :-)) and then this afternoon my artists in residence had a ball while I was finishing off some work. Yesterday Gramps finished framing about twenty of Emily's most recent paintings and a couple of Jon's (he won't allow the rest to be done...) so both staircases are now definitely art galleries supreme!

Meanwhile, just wanted to post a couple of cute kit bit picces, firstly Juliet biting off more than she can chew and sleepily defending her favourite toy - speaking of sleepy, Romeo barely managed to open his eyes for the last photo!

Gosh, thank you for all for such lovely comments! Emily went with Jon to a ten week art course before Easter; it was an adult course so she was the only child there; I think working with the grown ups was great for her; she picked up masses in terms of skills and (more importantly) confidence to just go for it!
