I've been spending the last few weeks sketching in public! Hmmm, now I don't sketch, as a rule, but with my own naive art style I've gradually got used to not being hidden behind a canvas indoors, without sunlight, on the sabbath, sorry, I got carried away there. The results, against my better judgement, along with my experiments in watercolour and torn paper can be found on Facebook these days.

Hello, me again! Just to say I discovered a while back that hair lacquer (yeah, as if I need it!) will remove dried on acrylic paint from clothing. Not perfect -but it does attack the paint to the point where it can be pretty much blotted out with clean kitchen towel! I suspect it's the nasty ingredients and butane, but there is hope for that favourite t-shirt if one has the patience to keep repeating the above process !!!
So, I've just survived my first 'Art's Trail' weekend. It was worth all the time spent updating websites, ordering prints and days spent in an amorphous swamp of spray mount haze, offcuts of card, acyclic paint, string, and sticky back plastic. No, wait, I didn't have sticky back plastic, I must be thinking of something else I made earlier! Read more →
Is that the date? Really? Only a couple left to mount those prints, put them in covers and sort out some sort of show....
Why do I leave it so late every year? Because I am an arty type and not an organised type that's why.
Am trying to put together a series of poems for specific roads in BS3. So far have a neat Haiku for Hebron. The actual structure of the ode and sonnet may be a little challenging but worth a go anyhoo.
Great plans are afoot. The acrylic paint is flying (some of which today ended up in my hair).
