My favourite surprise of the trip was stumbling across an 'Embrace' exhibition from my favourite artist (My fave because she specialises in mythical goddess art - among her fave animals are bears, badgers and hares!) Anyway. We went up to see her exhibition and after a while of looking round I asked the lady 'manning' everything for a couple of prints and she got chatting about the art and after some amazing conversation it turned out the lady I was busy gushing to, about my love of the animals she draws was none other than Wendy Andrew herself. In particular, she has done a new painting, where a woman with a mythical bear surrounding her, is breastfeeding a baby who has a mythical hare surrounding the baby..AMAZING... Maybe she knew me already! I shall always remember that - and the next new art she produces that includes a bear, badger or hare, I shall secretly think is dedicated to my children!!
