I am proud to exhibit the work of a fellow artist, Abbey.

Abbey is Twelve Years old and visiting us from Yorkshire, with her grandparents and cousin Sophie.

Abbey is, as you can see, an accomplished and imaginative artist.  On this occasion she has captured the view from our sitting-room window across the rooftops of Fishguard (Abergwaun in Welsh). Here you can see the harbour with the breakwater, and its lighthouse which shines green at night.

Abbey and Sophie leave today. We have really enjoyed their sparkling company and look forward to their return.


  1. Accomplished she is and clever. What have you been up to John?

  2. She really is clever. We've had a lot of visitors, Linda. I've finished the four poster and managed the first painting in months (see previous posting below).

  3. Marvellous !!!

    Well done, Abbey.

  4. Well Abbey, this is very creative indeed! It's beautiful!!! Clever girl :0)

  5. Very creative! Great job, Abbey!

  6. Fabulous concept and so glad you shared, John! She is good and I love how she thinks!

  7. Abbey is most certainly creative - love her take on the view!
    John, thank you for your comment on my post. Yes, silence is definitely GOLDEN!!! It was good to get out of my routine, and get those photos. The turkeys were amazing!! I don't think I've ever been so close to them - very strange-looking beasties! And thank you for that tidbit of info about Canada and Australia - who knew? Our weather here has been beautiful - very warm, but unfortunately, too dry - lot of forest fires. But some rain is promised this week. And I know you would do a fabulous job of a heritage home re-creation - it would be exquisite!
    Enjoy the peace and quiet.

  8. Abbey is a wonderful artist! Very original!

  9. How wonderful - talented and imaginative, too. I have been to Fishguard oh many many years ago...

  10. I love this painting/ creative!

  11. Abby is prove that artists are born with the ability to be creative in an artistic way. I hope she always keeps her delightful sense of fun as her talent matures.
    Good for you for mentoring her. Both of you are lucky.
