Nice slippy walk in the sunshine to the Weaver Hall Museum to pick up some stuff and looks at the latest exhibition of textile art. Not really my cup of tea but appreciate the work that's gone into making those tiny embroideries etc. Slipped and slid round Vickersway Park to see the handsome strutting cockeral and his mate and some budgies etc. in an aviary. Nobody else in there on such a nice day which seemed a shame.
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.
