I’m still not up to writing about my unexpected stay in hospital, the beginning of which coincided with a hotly anticipated visit from dear Janet Weight-Reed but here are Janet’s Isle of Wight impressions for you to enjoy and a description of her stay in Dorset with a friend from art school.

If you are a casual fan of Georgia O’Keeffe, you probably think of New Mexico when you think of her. After all, she lived there for decades and avidly explored the landscape in her work and her life, collecting stones and bones and accolades as one of America’s most celebrated painters.

But long before O’Keeffe embedded in the desert, her life included a period in the considerably lusher climes of upstate New York, on Lake George, the glacial Adirondack lake near here where she spent a series of summers — creating scores of paintings — while staying with Alfred Stieglitz, the photographer, art promoter and her eventual husband, whose family kept a small estate there.

Now, for the first time, some five-dozen of those creations have been brought together in an exhibition — “Modern Nature: Georgia O’Keeffe and Lake George” — at the Hyde Collection, a tiny museum in this modest, well-kept city of about 15,000, an hour north of Albany.

There’s only two days left to garner likes and, if you wish, create and buy tee-shirts and postcards, but if I get enough points from these activities by you lovely chaps and chappesses to add to the 500 given free, I’m in with a chance of having an image at 200 feet (60 meters) tall. I won’t know where to put meself!

The choice of which three artworks to submit was almost impossible but in the end I went for the three you see below. Now I want to change my mind but it’s too late!
