At 5pm yesterday I had my first swim in the sea this year. Some lovely friends met at the beach and were 2 metres apart (very strange indeed but you get used to it.) The water was extremely cold but once you were in it was fantastic. I'd hope to go again today but the wind is up and it's nowhere near as warm. Hopefully this will be a regular feature now, especially as this will be as near to a holiday as we'll get for quite some time. I'd tried swimming with a wet suit a few years ago but found it so cumbersome and difficult to move around, not to mention the cold water dripping down my back. So I sold it on e bay and enjoy being in my Speedo swimsuit instead.
The Society of Women Artists have an online exhibition that's well worth a look at as everything is under £500. I've had some enquiries which is always encouraging. Each day there is a featured artist - a great idea. Now, more than ever, art is in this virtual world. I think this is good in many ways especially where you can connect with other artists and chat about this and that. It also feels very supportive and friendly. Long may that continue.
