Spray away

Thought I'd put a professional edge on this painting for the RA, satin finnish is rubbish though you can't even tell, and it cost me 12 quid! Back to the art shop!

Summer Exhibition

Yes I've fell into the trap again, I just felt drawn to putting a piece forward to the Royal Academy, I know it's a lottery, I've only ever put one in before, anyway fingers crossed my "No Thanks" painting will go through!

Glyn Hughes book launch at the Artsmill in Hebden Bridge.  Glyn read some of his poems from his new book "A Year in The Bull Box", it was great to finally meet Glyn as I've been in contact via e.mail for some time now, but due to his illness he's never made it to the Mill, we've now made a date and Glyn and his partner will come visit me and join me for soup!

Weekend Previews

Friday night was the privet view of Colombian artist Oscar Munoz at the Cornerhouse in Manchester,his work explores universal themes of memory and human loss, it was a very exciting little show of his work, Helen and I couldn't get over the use of Coal dust in"Biografias".

Bored bored cut own hair

Cut your fringe off! Nothing else to report!
