Hooray hooray it's Saturday. Who is having a lie in? Here is 4/8 of my panoramics finished.πŸ‘©β€πŸŽ¨ This one is focussed on the welcoming entrance to St Peters church in Great Totham which is a beautiful Grade II listed building that dating back to the 13th century. It lies in the heart of rural Essex overlooking wide open landscapes and the River Blackwater estuary. Jasper and I often pass by from the fields at the rear of the church and it is such a wonderful discovery with a handsome vicarage, but I just love the Lych-gate and picket fence which feels so welcoming as you approach from the bend in the road and indeed it is a place of comfort. Lych is derived from the Old English 'lich', meaning corpse. They were meeting places and shelters for the party bringing a corpse for burial, and for the priest to receive the corpse. Although some had been built earlier, the 1549 Prayer Book required the priest to meet the corpse at the churchyard entrance.Β  This encouraged the provision of lych-gates to shelter the corpse and the funeral party for that purpose. Medieval lych-gates were made of timber and most have long since disappeared. However, many new lych-gates were erected in Victorian times, sometimes as memorials to prominent local people or as war memorials. This one was rebuilt in 2016. @MaldonDistrict.tics @VisitEssex #MaldonStudios #MaldonArtist #Artist #Art #InstaArtist #ArtistOnInstagram #GreatTotham #StPetersTotham #Landscapes #LocalArtist #ArtPractice #PaletteKnife #AcrylicArt #BeautifulEssex #VisitMaldon #Painting #BeVisuallyInspired #BeCreative #VisitEssex #Lychgate #Maldon

Happy Friday my friends! Toot toot and 3/8 little painting finished.πŸ‘©β€πŸŽ¨ This one is from Fullbridge Quay looking towards Carrs Flour mill across the river Chelmer with beautifully rusty aged old mill on the left inhabited by hilarious seagulls (dont they sound like they have just heard the best joke ever? - Taylor says that's me laughing at my own jokes - cheek!) and the quiet shiny modern one on the right. Still making flour processing approximately 300,000 tonnes of wheat a year at their 3 mills including this one. We are not just a pretty town you know. Such a very Maldon view to me. You can walk along the river for many miles coming across these picturesque scenes....and Jasper and I do, although we do drive to those more far away spots to save his little old legs. Bless.

Sometimes all is not what it seems. Sometimes we see what we want to see. Sometimes the journey into what we perceive is a momentary relief, an escape from where we are, where we would rather not be.

One of two little painting finished. This one is down by the Blackwater sailing club and reminds me of my trip to Norway with its quite wild coastal inlets, summerhouses with dark spindly jetties stretching out to the sea. One of many I will be doing of this stretch of the water here as it's one of my favourite spots. This is a lovely looking sailing club which is owned and run by it's 1000 members and is over 100 years old. They do taster sessions and we can often hear the horn on race days as boats cross the race line from where we live. There's are another two tea rooms overlooking Osea island further along where you can watch the boats or maybe become a temporary member and watch the water from the clubhouse? @MaldonDistrict.tics @VisitEssex #MaldonStudios #MaldonArtist #Artist #Art #InstaArtist #ArtistOnInstagram #BlackwaterEstuary #BlackwaterSailingClub #Jetty #SummerHouse #RiverBlackwater #Landscapes #LocalArtist #ArtPractice #PaletteKnife #AcrylicArt #BeautifulEssex #VisitMaldon #Painting #BeVisuallyInspired #BeCreative #ThingsToDoInMaldon #VisitEssex

We nipped down the road to Heybridge Basin yesterday and it was so beautiful! There were lots of boating people, cyclists, folk walking their dogs, bird watchers and tea drinkers at the Tiptree cafe!
