Bargain filled indoor bootsale this morning at Memorial Court with Hazel and Beth. Got some nice old snap cards, doll dressing book, leaky metal teapot, Beetle game, Cuban enamel badges, map measurer, etc etc. Then to Lidl for some "bits". Quite busy for a Sunday morning as was the boot sale - the sunshine must have lured people out. Then to B&Q so Beth could get a pot of white paint for her kitchen ceiling. Simon had promised to paint it as it was getting mold spots. Stopped off at Beth and Simon's for tea and custard cream. Chatted about recent films we had seen. We had lent them A Little Chaos which they enjoyed.
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 collector of all sorts , 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.
