Autobiography

Friday 16. o2. 18 This is one of my new projects. I am going to make a visual autobiography for my granddaughters Daisy and Poppy. It will consist of a series of postcards with a current self portrait printed on them but with a face pasted on and a date drawn in the background. On the other side beside the address will be a series of phrases from that period of my life. The face, colour and date will change and I’m planning a series of perhaps 12 to be sent once a week.

Back home

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!
