This weekend I went to visit The Barbara Hepworth gallery in wakefield which is a wonderful gallery designed by the award winning architects David Chipperfield which sits amongst a dramatic waterfront setting of the river Calder surrounded by industrial buidings. From the outside the buiding looks quite like a unpenatrable castle but once you are inside the space welcoming an is bathed in natural light. It was opened only in May 2011 in the city where Hepworth was born.Part of the unique collection includes the plaster models donated from the Hepworth estate. There are ten gallery spaces some of which show the influences on Hepworths work from the international to the abstract artists in St Ives where she spent her later years. This new gallery is well worth a visit and is FREE

I really enjoy cycling it enables you to see things that you might never notice if you went by car. The other day when cycling to the studio at islington mill on my little white raleigh bike I noticed the crocuses had been planted to spell islington. I had to stop and take a picture

I went down to Wales the other weekend which was great I went with six other women and stayed at a wonderful place which I coudn't recomend highly enough. Go to see the site on www.millhavenplace.co.uk which is on the pembrokshire coast. We stayed in the cottage which was really lovely and the family could not have been more welcoming. It is a short walk to the sea and has stuning coastal walks. The spring flowers were in full bloom. It was good to get away and blow a few cobwebs from the system.
