Tuesday 03. 12 13 Coming home late last night noticed that the local Christmas lights are up and running with of course the ubiquitous white van!
Monday 02. 12. 13 George and I spent the weekend erecting the above. We are available for hire by appointment.
Monday 02. 12. 13 Besides putting up the Christmas lights they are also trimming the big Plane trees around the Place du Marché.
Sunday 24. 11. 13 Christmas cards arrived this week after I got back from the UK so I think that I have finally addressed them all ready to send.
Tuesday 19. 11. 13 Just back from a week in the UK. Stayed in London at an interesting new hotel in the East end called Qbic located just off Whitechapel High Street near Brick Lane reasonable prices and quite funky. Did the usual galleries – particularly enjoyed the Australia show at the RA. Took the boat to Greenwich from Westminster, saw the Christmas windows on Oxford St. Rented a car for the weekend and tried to explore the Thames estuary but it is difficult to actually access the river. However went to the new Turner gallery at Margate which is a wonderful building right on the beach. A good show there of various Brit artists who worked en plein air – Constable, Cotman and of course Turner. Stayed overnight in Broadstairs and came back via Southend and Canvey Island. Brief but stimulating as always.
Tuesday 05. 11. 13 En route to my afternoon course in etching at Octon I saw this.
Saturday 02. 11. 13 It has been a bit like Santa’s workshop in the studio this week preparing various painterly Christmas presents none of which I can show here! However I have also started an etching and am continuing with shoes/boots
