We went to the giant boot sale at Knutsford this morning. Got a few old postcards including these two of Blackpool Tower. Also a folder for collages. Hazel got a few odd bits for her odd bits collection - a measurer for eyes, picture hangers, fold away magnifying glass and some ceramics etc. This after noon walked through Carey park to the Anderton Lift along the River Weaver and had lunch in the beer garden of the pub nearby. Only asked for a sandwich but it arrived with a pile of chips and salad - so much for a light lunch! Waddled back into town to get some jelly for Hazel's Mom who is having teeth trouble (had one out and two fillings) so finding it hard to eat solids. No jelly in Marks & Sparks so got her some custardy trifles etc. to try.
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.
