Nice morning over Nantwich way to two boot sales - the first at Vagrants wasa bit chaotic and muddy. The second a bit further on at Weston was much larger , round the edge of a cricket field and better organised. Got a few bargains at each including a massive frame ( too big really but only £3 ) some sewing stuff, plants, rulers, heavy rusty weight, heavy rusty old flat iron, letters on a wooden board (?) and a lovely pewter thimble in the shape of an acorn. Home in time delicious mushroom and squeaky cheese bun for lunch.
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.
