On Twitter we follow the adventures of @CumbrianBlondie (A.K.A Gina) who was attempting to complete her list of 40 new things at the age of 40.

Frances Winder, local artist from Kendal, enjoys the fleeting qualities of light and colour. In her work she always tries to grasp the internal qualities, the essential mood and spirit of place while increasingly exploring abstract, experimenting with texture and colour.
Frances is one of many artists who are currently exhibiting their work at Low Wood Bay as part of ARTober. A FREE one week interactive art festival at the hotel daily until 3rd November 2013, where you can see over 30 artists from across the country exhibiting various diverse artistic mediums from painting, ceramics, drawing and printmaking to sculpture, digital art and photography. Don’t miss the unique opportunity to purchase artwork from the artists themselves. With FREE art workshops, including Printmaking, iPad Art, Photography, Painting and Children’s Illustration.
You can also see a range of ‘live art’ being created during the exhibition. Tim Ingle, our resident web designer at English Lakes took the opportunity to visit the festival yesterday and spent some time with Frances as she started to create her next piece of work.
The Sine Dubio FREE Art Festival returns to Low Wood Bay with Artober from 28th October to 3rd November 2013.
In this video Sophia Newton, event organiser explains what this unique Lake District event is all about.
