Hello fellow Artists and Followers of my blog.
Yesterday morning, Tuesday, I was on top of the world. I had been accepted to show in a Local Art Exhibition in our town Shopping Complex. Then I accepted a very nice space, in a new gallery with 4 other artists from this coming Saturday! Yippee...Panic! Need to frame some silks by Friday. So, off to Ikea to get some nice but inexpensive wooden frames, which is better than £120 for one frame which I was quoted earlier! Took ages to check silk pieces with frame size, colour etc.. We finished then took one hour to reach our flat. That is when disaster struck. No blue bag with about 12 silks and 2 phones in!!!!!! Panic phone calls, dash back to Ikea... They have been taken. Don't know if I want to cry, be angry or just feel totally stupid. In fact I feel all of them! The reason I had BOTH phones in the bag was because I had to take them back to the phone shop, because of problems with one of them. Otherwise, I would still have my old phone but not my NEW one. Unfortunately new one was in between insurance!!! NOT A GOOD DAY!!!! Apart from the hassle and the money angle, it is the time and effort I had put into those paintings. Oh well, hope whoever has them gives them to some one who will love them.
That is enough of my moan, l will now talk about last weekend spent with my son Andrew , his wife Gemma and Alfie!
This is the first time that l have been on a very long walk with Alfie. It was great fun and l had a good work out at the same time. This walk with and amongst the sheep was fantastic.
This is an image of my son, the professional photographer, at work...helped by his ever faithful assistants.
On this walk we found some amazing trees and l love the greens. Very velvet looking.
These are the first violets l have seen this year and for many years actually when l think about it.
Alfie decided to go for a swim........can you see him? We were a little worried as he seemed to just keep going. Remember he isn't a year old yet!
