Workshop at Monk Fryston Art Group. I painted a guide picture of a Venetian door and these lovely people showed their individuality with these very different paintings. Well done to all!

My contribution –
I’m not a good dancer
You’d laugh if I tried.
So I dance in my mind.
I point my toes and send ripples across the floor.
I kick and send colours flying through the air.
A sweep of my arm sends an arc of glitter across the room
And I hold my head high – like a dancer.
