Art Lecture, Baking and A Tea Party

We ‘attended’ a brilliant talk this morning about one of our favourite artists, Andrew Wyeth. Art Historian Stella Grace Lyons, has such an accessible style of delivery and is so enthusiastic. It is a pleasure to spend an hour with her and to discover so much more about this artist. Next week, the talk is about Edward Hopper, another favourite of ours.

Wind From the Sea Andrew Wyeth 1947. Just look at the delicacy of the lace.

This afternoon, I baked with T, LiveWire No 3. She chose to make a Victoria Sponge and we spent a lovely couple of hours together ending up with a delicious cake in each household.

There is no way that the lovely Mr S and I could (or should) eat all this cake so we enjoy sharing with Sue-next-door. We had a very socially distanced tea party, each bringing our own cup of tea and using disposable plates and enjoying a very good catch up. You can see the rain spots on the top of the cake. We don’t let the rain stop our fun!

Berthe Morisot and An Autumn Walk

We joined a Zoom lecture this morning about my favourite artist, Berthe Morisot. It was given by Stella Grace Lyons and was fascinating.

The Cradle by Berthe Morisot

Afterwards, it being a glorious Autumn day, we went off for a favourite walk along to Loe Bar on the Penrose Estate. Join us!
