The scene at the end of our road yesterday after firefighters took three hours to put out blaze at local school. Arson is suspected. It wasn't me - honest guv! Road was shut so we had to make diversions to get to Alsager to have lunch with the Eves and Dave Smith. Nice sunny day - a bit too bright for driving really. Nice food and chats. Tony showed us his holiday snaps from Oz. Looked quite idyllic - on the Gold Coast - swimming every day. A bit of a rude return to Blighty with the snow and ice - they wish they had stayed there I think! Home by 5 as Hazel doesn't like driving in the gloom of dusk. Ate rather a lot so had cheese and biscuits for our dinner.
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.
