Bumper crop of goodies from the boot at Blakemere this morning. Bargains included DVD's of Arrival, Yellow Submarine. Games COD,Dark Sector. CD's of Penguin Cafe Orch. and Majuregenta. Watercolour tubes - and three old National Geographics to cut up. Hazel got some flowerpots, bizarre Oliver twist plates, even more weird egg timer from Rhyl with man in turban? Ring measurer- hole punches, money box and carborundum stone.. The sun did come out eventually. Stall holders were moaning at how quite it was but seemed pretty busy to me.
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.
