On a recent trip to Derbyshire, England, I visited Chatsworth House. Unfortunately, the stately home once owned by Bess of Hardwick, said to be one of the richest women in England during the 16th century, was closed. I meandered around the beautiful gardens only to stumble across a small annex building. It looked as though it had once been the gatehouse to the majestic home. Anyhow, I peered inside, and was surprised to see a local artist, Mel Booth in the process of dismantling his wonderful exhibit. Although he was obviously very busy, Mel took the time to discuss his methods, and his approach to his work which is excellent, full of color, and very creative.
