80th

Tuesday 02. 07. 19 Just back from a quick visit to TO. I went as a surprise for Alan for his 80th birthday and indeed I was a surprise. I also managed to see most of the usual suspects and got caught up with them and also the family. Back here Friday night to temperatures of over 40 degrees! This is a Tooney that Alan designed for the 75th anniversary of D Day.

39 Hazel Close

Monday 03. 06. 19 Started on a new project today painting contemporary Whitton, comparing it with the days of my childhood. The photo shows the house as it was then and the painting, which is still a work in progress, is as it is now. Quelle différence!

Belarg’arts

Sunday 02. 06 19 Yesterday spent the day at a printmaking workshop in Belarga. We worked on doing dry point engravings on tetrapak packaging. Very stimulating and convivial. It was an all-day workshop with lunch. The only downside I could see was that one is restricted by the size of the the tetrapak altho there maybe larger boxes around. Did my Franglais piece – not a great meeting this week for some reason.

Artpage

Sunday 26. 05. 19 Rode over to Octon this afternoon to the Artpage expo. An excellent show of artist’s books with very high standards. Visited Joan in her studio and also ran into some old friends, Elisabeth from St Mathieu and Jutta from Octon. A stimulating afternoon – I now have more thoughts and projects!!!! Did Franglais 2 commemorating Gordon’s gift of Latvian cider last friday.
