Monday 26. 09. 11 Just got back from a weekend chez Marie-Pierre and Olivier at St Médard en Jalles near Bordeaux. Rode the scooter over to see how it and I performed on long journeys. We both did well and I was surprised at how unstressed I was after 9 hours in the saddle!! I just took the RN roads so didn’t have much traffic to deal with and just enjoyed the changing landscapes, architecture and crops. Of course it helped that the weather was perfect. Fished with Olivier and Marie-Pierre in the Bassin d’Arcachon together with Laurens and Didier, successfully for the first time, had the usual sumptious meals and even managed to get up to Rochefort to the Marine Museum and Pierre Loti’s house, both well worth a visit.
19. 09. 11 Monday Made a blackboard this weekend which I put in my kitchen. I’m going to try and do a new drawing on it most days. This is day#2.
Tuesday 13. 09. 11 Finally finished the drawings of the trip down east that I did with Daisy this summer. Now on to the monoprints!
Tuesday 13. 09. 11 Just back from a long weekend in London where I met Julia and stayed at Maryann’s. We had a great time and managed to get to some galleries. Saw a disturbing installation in Hoxton by Ryan Gander called Locked Room Scenario set in an old disused factory, the Poussin/ Twombly show at the Dulwich which was a disappointment – too cramped to really work. On Saturday we went to an interesting installation by Michelangelo Pistoletto at the Serpentine plus the Pavillion had a wonderful wildlife garden designed by Piet Oudolf. On Monday just managed to catch the Lautrec with Jane Avril show at the Courtauld before flying back here
