It's the busiest week of the year! Well, at least that's true for those of us living in Pittenweem. As many of of my fellow resident artists would agree, we are lucky be based in this beautiful, east coast fishing village. The wonderful seaside setting is an inspiration to hundreds of non-resident artists too and at this time every year, we join together for The Pittenweem Arts Festival. Thousands of visitors flock to the village for this celebration of art at unique venues including water front homes and studios tucked away amidst the wee lanes and wynds!
I hope that if you haven't already joined us, you'll one day be able to take part in the bustling atmosphere of this special event. Meanwhile, here are 3 ways to bring the 'art' of the festival home to you....
See - Seraphine
This beautiful film about a struggling, female artist in France is an inspiration. It was featured in the festival cinema at this year's Pittenweem Arts Festival. You can take home your own copy here.
Do - A Creative Coastal Trip
Fancy yourself as an artist? Dip your toes in the water with a coastal day trip or weekend - there's no better place to get your creative inspiration flowing! Go beach combing for sea glass or driftwood and you are bound to find a way to turn it into a pretty ornament for your home or garden ....
Buy - A Piece Of Unique Art
I've been inundated with requests for commissions this week from visitors who want to take home a special momento from their stay. Commissioning an artist to create a special piece for you is a great way to share in the creative process! You can find out more about my own commissions at www.funkyscottish.com
Meanwhile, you can also start planning your trip to next year's festival....
Hope to see you soon !!!
