Friday Feb 21st
Just reached the studio here this morning in Skagaströnd. It's going to make sauntering up the road to the studio in Coleford, Somerset or popping round to the studio next to the house in Brindister, Shetland look very very tame. Loads of snow here and buffeting wind - I had to shovel out of the house, then shovel to pick up Sarah (artist from Montreal) in downstairs flat, and then together walk through the wind and snow and ice to the studio laughing, then shovel more when we got to there, and then shovel some more to open to back door to let in some air (and snow). Don't need to go to the gym when you've got snow. This is the view from the studio door.
