Narrowboat Living in Lockdown

Well here we are living on our Narrowboat in a Marina during lockdown. How’s it been? Actually not too bad, okay we can’t visit our friends on the Marina for a brew and a chat like we were hoping and we can’t invite family and friends over to join us on the boat for a day our or simply a catch up. Our parents haven’t even seen the boat yet. But we have made some amazing friends here at the Marina.

Every Sunday we sat out no matter how cld it is and chat to our neighbours, all socially distanced of course. It’s really nice to have that human interaction with our neighbours and it’s one of the great things about the boating community. We have had so many offers of help from people, we have had cake, scones, bread even lea left for us.

While in the Marina and not actually sailing it gives me time to edit our YouTube video’s and produce new pieces of art as well as catch up with my commission work.

We also have water and electricity hook up and maybe its good that we have had to spend this winter in a Marina. As David from Cruising the Cut says, going out on your boat cruising in winter can take the fun out of it.

I have also dabbled with watercolours and really loving this medium at last.

We are hoping to go cruising out on the cut as soon as its okay to do so and we have actually checked with the Canal and River Trust who have said we are okay to travel and get closer to Anthony’s work. Watch this space.

Thanks for reading

Featured on Cruising The Cut

“Holy moly this man knows how to draw!”

David from Cruising the Cut asked if I would like my artwork featured on a video to be released in November and the resulting order numbers were amazing. So nice of David from YouTube Channel Cruising The Cut to feature the work of artists and small businesses that operate from narrowboats. Some lovely comments on my artwork. https://youtu.be/Rhp0qiaFtvI

Living on a Narrowboat

If you didn’t know already we are now living on a 57′ Narrowboat called Morning Star. We are loving the lifestyle, although we can’t move anywhere for at least 6 weeks due to restriction on the network and Covid. Orders for my art have been flying in and I can’t tell you how special it feels to be producing art and selling art from the boat. People have been asking if I ship Worldwide and yes I do. I hope you are staying safe and well and thanks for stopping by.
Paul
