We had a week away in Northumberland last week; chilling out, walking the beautiful white beaches 

splashing in the rock pools 

walking on Hadrian's Wall in the footsteps of the ancestors (I can't be certain of course, but it certainly felt like it)

 standing in awe at the mighty Kielder Reservoir

 But I still found time to get my art on, sketching in the dunes

and making mandalas in the sand 

I arrived home with some lovely reminders  

Hope you're having some holiday art fun - I would so love to hear from you about what you're up to...

From my heart to yours
