Two boots today ( Whitegate and Verdin Park )with Beth and Hazel. I didn't get much - just slightly fried and a stack of blank CD's. Hazel found some interesting objects including a needle case ( which Bob saved for her ) a file box ( which was on our list of things to get ), a metal file box, a small nuts and bolts cabinet with lots of plastic drawers, a plant, a plastic banana, flowerpots amd a toffee tin. Nice to back into the relative cool of the house.
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.
