The blog was started in 2012 by Benoit Philippe and has had 112,000 page views since then, and 768 posts. It hasn't always been exclusively about Swindon Open Studios, but I've really enjoyed writing it and posting lots of photos. I am continuing writing a blog at www.kasmaty.blogspot.co.uk and www.friendsofsmag.blogspot.com ,so please have a look at those and sign up to them when you can do so. I think the newly formed kasmaty one needs some additional things before it's fully followable.
I visited 5 studios yesterday, and will give a flavour of the visits below.
I walked to all studios form St.Margaret's Road, firstly to Anthea Hilson and Mollie Gratland at Linley Close. Mollie had made the fabulous silk sail banner outside
Waddell were exhibiting, 3 artists over 3 floors. I got some nice photos of father and son together, I've added two, must send the rest to them:
Hannah Dosanjh also in the Mall. I've included this painting below of Posh Rupert because I've admired him for a while now. I bought a pencil case type bag with his image on to make up for the fact he'd been sold. I also sat down for a cup of tea and discovered Hannah doesn't have a Twitter account which explains why @hannahdosanjh hasn't responded to my tweets to her!!
