The painting spent a day at Heysham Library. We met Heysham Art Group as well as members of the community, there to celebrate work by a local painter. One of the visitors bought two watercolours and recounted episodes from his life with great enthusiasm.
The library hosts a weekly meeting of Heysham Knit and Natter group, who came along with their own ongoing knitting projects, but willingly spent their time contributing knitted fragments, representing areas of the painting.
If paintings could speak, it would describe an afternoon of broad ranging conversation, about anything and everything, to the soundtrack of knitting needles clicking busily!
