Open Studio

It is Somerset Art Week and we have been to visit our friends the artists James and Kate Lynch and look around their house and studio. There is always a warm welcome and wonderful art to covet.

Kate with artwork produced for her book, "SHEEP from Lamb to Loom, an illustrated journey."

James has his studio in the garden.

Come down the garden path and take a look inside.

He works in traditional egg tempera on gesso-coated panels. Just look at the pile of eggshells!

Text from James' book,"Skylines, Visionary Paintings of Wessex."

Even more eggs in the kitchen!

Everywhere I point my camera there is something interesting to see.


  1. Beautiful, thank you for the tour, what incredible and inspirational art both illustrated and written.

  2. Bonjour et merci !
    Thanks for this emotional virtual visit to a friend of mine : Kate and I are long-time pen friends, and she is my british sister...
    With my husband we visited Kate and James at "Four Chimneys" for the first time last year at the beginning of spring.
    Thanks to you, I have now a view of the house and garden at the end of summer ;)

  3. Thank you so much for this lovely visit with two wonderful artists.

    And thank you so very, very much for your comment on the post about my mother. It means more than I can say.
