Tuesday 01. 09. 20 Gordon’s new grandson was born in a taxi!
Saturday 26. 10 19 I seem to have spent all this week working on my Whitton series but as yet haven’t actually finished one!
Here is the latest Franglais showing how I need to pronounce la rue!
Sunday 13. 10.19 This is this week’s Franglais drawing.
Friday 30. 08. 19 I have finally finished this project based on Xavier de Maistre’s Voyage Autour Ma Chambre. I know – not very good photos but it gives an idea of the 4 “books.”
Thursday 22. 08. 19 Went to an excellent expo at the Musée of landscape photos and paintings. I thought the deck chairs outside the museum were an excellent idea!
Thursday 15. 08. 19 I am still busy working on the Whitton project and the above show recent progress.
Wednesday 22. 05. 19 Just got back this morning from a busy 5 days in London. Met Carol on Saturday and spent the whole day at the Crypt catching up. Sunday was Van Gogh at Tate Britain and Franz West and Dorothy Tanning at Tate Modern. Monday I took the train to Whitton and took a lot of photos of places from my childhood. Met Ed Harris for lunch at the Nelson and reminisced about post-war Whitton. Tuesday saw an excellent Kubrick exhibition at the Design Museum and then visited my old school in Chiswick before heading back to Luton for the night. Took the 6.30am flight back home this morning.
Sunday 08. 04. 18 Did another coloured pencil sketch of tulips today, this time on tinted paper and then did this TO Skyline using oil pastels. Also did the 8th postcard.
Friday 16. 02. 18 Got back home on Tuesday afternoon after spending Christmas in Toronto. I had a great time and I think that I managed to see everybody! Didn’t do any work at all but thought a lot and have a couple of projects that I want to work on. Today went for a ride around the lake – 16 degrees and sunny – a pleasant contrast to Toronto!
Friday 07. 07. 17 Nearly finished these two. Off to a weekend retreat at the Buddhist monastery just north of Lodève.
