Crab and Lobster Festival art trail

I've turned a boat into an art gallery for this year's Crab & Lobster Festival in Cromer.

I'm taking part in the Boat Shelves Art Trail, which is part of the Cromer Crab & Lobster Festival. I've turned the boat into a gallery, with an exhibition of my art downstairs and me painting upstairs. The Dream Boat is on display at The Gallery Norfolk.

I've named the boat Brizo, the patron goddess of sailors and fishermen. She was also a prophet who specialised in interpreting dreams.

It's not the first time I've taking part in the festival. Many years ago I painted a giant lobster, and in 2015 I painted and decorated a ship's wheel. I've included a mini version of the lobster I made in the boat / gallery.
