Did you spend childhood holidays in Cornwall? If you did, I'd like to hear from you!
I'm preparing for an exhibition of paintings which will be held in spring next year, which has the landscape of Cornwall as its theme. Three different landscape painters, including myself, will be showcasing their different approaches to painting the same place.
My work is all about an emotional response to a landscape, about what it's actually like to be there, using lots of textures and expressive colour. Obviously, I'm going to be going to be visiting Cornwall myself, but I'd be very interested to hear from anyone who spent their summers there (or who lives there) and what it means to you.
What's special about Cornwall? What sums it up for you? A particular place? An evocative sound? A colour or smell? What did you look forward to doing or seeing most on holiday there? How did going to Cornwall make you feel?
Whatever it is, I'd love to hear from you. Just leave a comment below - you don't have to be a follower to do so, and you don't have to leave your name. Or you can drop me a line via my website.
