Bawdsey beach,finding coins there/painting it

For over 20 years iv walked Bawdsey beach.In that time its changed due to coastal erosion from a beach where people sat on the shingle for the last 100yrs +to just a bedrock clay surface where its always wet and nobody sits . About 8 years ago i found most of these coins on just this short stretch of this beach as the shingle retreated they were left exposed on the clay base . Now im painting the beach and sometime im collecting driftwood there too.

Duke Street painting

i used to clean windows here , its a series of accomodation blocks ,a Residential area in Ipswich.The homes all have industrial doors with intercom entry . These were built in 2009 and i often drive down this road in the course of my work,Pownall Road, as a cut thru to Duke street at the bottom where the Uni accomodation is .Theres never much traffic on this short road . I decided to paint it recently

making an art water pot

Decided i could make a better brush water pot ,to clean my brushes properly -over my original

jam jar water pot.The jam jar worked but did not do the job of cleaning very well.

So i repurposed this clear plastic mixer jar ,added a brush inside ,and a wood base for extra stability  .Then i carved some ridges in the rim to make brush rests .Voila ! i have a really great brush cleaner
