Thanks to everyone who has contacted me via the website with encouragement and good comments about the contents and my work.
At the moment I am fully involved in setting up all the events surrounding the White Cliffs Project which will bring together artists, quilters and photographers, professional and amateur artists, students and children in a celebration of the White Cliffs of Dover in a series of workshops, classes and exhibitions during 2013.
I have also been busy painting my entry for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition which is a reinterpretation of one of my favourite subjects, Dover Castle from the Downs, but on a much larger scale.
I will also be busy painting a series of pictures based on the shapes of cocoliths which form the White Cliffs, and quilting those shapes for a sequence of pieces ready for our exhibition of textiles in September!
I hope that all readers of the blog and the website feel inspired to get involved too, we'd love to have work submitted from all over the world!
Best wishes to you all, Joan
