Spring in the air yesterday as we walked round Marbury Country Park to see the daffs and hear the woodpeckers etc. Lots of daft dogs about too - one which covered my duffle coat with foaming slobber as he romped by - his owner shouting "Tarquin, come away you naughty dog!" More crumpled features and waggy tails passed by and thankfully vanished round the edge of the lake. Nice peaceful walk to the canal and round the woods to the car park. Still free as the machine seems to be permanantly broken. Hazel got some primroses and herbs in the garden centre too. Also popped into a small textile arty crafty show in the rangers hut. Some dogs outside waiting for their owners ( see above ). Hazel pointing at sound of woodpecker ( above ). Home for fish finger bun and raspberry cakes that Hazel made.
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.
