Spent a nice morning in the artist run VAC Gallery in Northwich. First to Brusceta's for a vege breakfast and de-caff coffee which was very nice. Had fun looking at all the postcards of exotic places he has in there on the walls. Emma was at the gallery and preparing some old tins and shoe boxes etc. for pin hole camera use. She plans to do a workshop at some point. As I promised to volunteer for a morning I stayed to line a biscuit tine with black paper and make it light tight. I took this photo of the library next door which came out quite well considering I didn't know the right exposure. I guessed at 5 seconds and thankfully it was spot on!
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.
