It lives......

Just a quick idea of what's been happening in the yard at the studio.

This sculpture of a wave is a collaborative piece I'm working on with three other artists.
Tony Eadson is the other bloke in the pictures, Annie Lloyd and Jenny Rumens are the female half of the team.........not to mention our all round admin guru, and Lady in charge; Sally Wallace.

The piece is for Salthouse 08, the annual art exhibition held in and around the church and village of Salthouse on the North Norfolk coast.

It's pretty much in the bag now, I'll post some more images later.

(Oh, by the way, if you are going to be on the coast road on Thursday morning, beware of travelling rogue waves !)

Today, I'll be mostly sitting in St. Margarets Church, Norwich, looking after a group exhibition.

If you're near St. Benedicts Street, pop in and say hello........(10.00 till 5.00).

turned out nice again

Get out and paint a bit.

That was my plan for today. In fact, it was the last thing I thought about as I nodded off last night.
Sadly as I awoke to the sound of the British summer in full flow, I quickly amended my plan to;
Lay in bed and watch UKTV History.
Even more sadly, as I was doing my best to imitate a pile of freshly laundered clothes piled inertly on the bed, Herself spotted me and cunningly issued a list of instructions disguised as a conversation.
So here I sit, having done some admin, cleaned out the e-mail inbox, paid a bill, thought about what to cook for dinner, listened to the radio, singularly failed to smile about the horrible soggy weather, and finally got wet fetching dog food.

artist in hard work scandal......

It's true, honest.

Open Studios came and went, it was okay but generally a bit down on last year. (Footfall and turnover).
This week sees a brief foray into the city of Norwich, with a bunch of other painters and sculptors.
We are showing in St. Margaret's Church, St. Benedict's Street, until 5.00pm on Saturday. If you are in the Fine City between now and then, come and say hello.
I'm invigilating today and all day Saturday, so if you would rather keep your mental image of me as a dashing young blade with a freshly polished pallette, it might be best to avoid those days.

Thanks to those of you who started to sound concerned by my absence, it warms the cockles.

That will be all.
