Meanwhile, we've just had a big meeting of all the artists who will be involved with the Open Studios Ayrshire event this year. The date for your diary is 25th and 26th April. More than 60 artists will be involved this year and there will be a mini bus to bring people from the various 'hubs' - our local hub is the Carrick Centre at Maybole. This should make it much easier for visitors to see more of what's on offer in individual studios.
We'll be open from 10 am on both days and all visitors will be made most welcome. Our village cafe and pub will also be open on the day offering a wonderful selection of food and drink, from teas, coffees and home baking in our community shop and cafe, just along the road from my studio, to the excellent full meals on offer in the Kirkmichael Arms.
Meanwhile, why not go along and 'like' our Facebook Page so that you can keep up with all the news as it happens.
