Rubbing Virtual Shoulders

I love meeting people; I love rubbing shoulders with people from different backgrounds and with people who bring different things to life. It may sound counter-intuitive, but it is also why I love blogging. I have been in the virtual company of, and read about many different and interesting people.

After my discovery that I not only grew up alongside a fabulous artist but that I actually like his art - imagine growing up alongside Max Beckman! - my blog was visited by another artist, Katherine, who, had I not blogged, would have remained far away from my consciousness, on the far side of the world.

Mrs C and I are off to a far away place for a week: Scotland, Drummore to be precise. In the meantime, you can do worse than visit Katherine's blog in New Zealand where you can not only see her lovely interpretations of her native landscape but also learn some of the fascinating process of their creation.

See you all in a week or so.

Have a really lovely holiday you two - blog all about it when you get back!

Katherine said...

Welcome back Mr and Mrs Crofty! Hope you had a super time!

Well, we're back - why is it that having been somewhere quiet and idyllic the world seems to be moving ten times faster than when you left?!

As soon as I get half an hour spare I'll start writing about our fabulous trip.
