It was a kind of joint Audrey and Hazel birthday lunch yesterday with a cold collation ( too hot to put the oven on) balloons, streamers, cards, presents etc. Audrey and Granma Jones came over for lunch and then watched some film whilst being filmed for Auntie Audrey in Australia. Also they had some games of Bust-A-Move on the PS2 and rode round on quad bikes. Seemed even more humid and heavier than of late and difficult to do anything but flop. Hopefully some respite today. They have promised some thunderstorms but none so far. This nice photo taken by Esther when she was here.
A kind of diary, a log, a ramble, nothing to do with the Flowerpot Men. My life as an artist, a collagist, a rubber stamper, a networker, a dad , a letter writer and a postcard maker. Observations about this and that in no particular order.
I grew up in the home counties around London during the 50's and 60's. Went to several art schools including Southend ,Chelsea and Manchester. Trained as a painter and printmaker but now mostly using collage. Collect novelty songs and old mail art amongst other things too numerous to mention.
