Open Studios, or art's weeks or whatever you call them are great.
They offer a chance to see artist's work, talk to them about it, and see where they work is so exciting.
The walk round the studios in itself was inspiring with many breathtaking views of the sea, and in the case of some of them, from inside the house.
Janet Haigh and Stephen Jacobson have the most amazing views from their home right beside the Severn Estuary, the changes of light and mood could make it difficult to do anything but look across the estuary.
Even the small enamelled pieces seen in the corners of the window were lovely, they don't meet Janet's high standards and so she wouldn't sell them.
These two photographs show work by Dawn Sidoli, and below people looking at her work. Dawn is a member of Severn Sea artists, her work can be viewed on their website: www.severnseaartists.co.uk
