How things have changed

Tuesday 13. 06. 17 Another hot day on the beach at Meze. Yesterday I worked on Autoportraits 4 & 5 and have also been reading The Descent of Man by Grayson Perry – a tract on masculinity. This morning on the beach in my speedos I remember my Dad and Grandad on east coast beaches in England, Dad in shorts, Grandad in trousers and a waistcoat. How things have changed!

La Transition

 

 

Tuesday 23. 05. 17 Just back from a great weekend in Bordeaux. I was invited to Olivier’s retirement party which we celebrated at Le Prieuré an old priory in Castres sur Gironde just outside Bordeaux. A wonderfully French weekend with lots of good food, including 2 roasted pigs, good conversation and good wine. Happily we could also stay the night there. I gave Olivier this painting to mark the occasion.
