Freya Horsley's Painting

Perhaps not the best result from my attempts  to show Freya Horsley's painting "Loss" hanging in the flat sitting room but the sunlight coming in through the windows is scarce . This painting was displayed at a wonderful gallery in Helmsley called Saltbox well worth a visit if you are in North Yorkshire.

A friend Nick Andrews has replaced the dated bed heads, in the new extension "Buzzard" , with these beautiful pieces of matching sycamore from our own timber. Also replaced are those in the "Owl" bedroom see below:
 The bedroom "Owl" above has 2 windows : one looks out to the orchard and stables and the other looks onto the porch between the flat and house. Before the flat was built to provide living accommodation for the young couple looking after Rod's mother it looked out to the garden. We thought the porch wall looked boring until Eller was inspired to paint arches and flowers inspired by
 Larch Cottage Nurseries near Penrith.
