A few things l saw on a trip up to Central London!

Before l show you the images for today ... some news. I have had closed my wonderful artyfizz art studio :) There were quite a few reasons but 2 main reasons stand out. One reason was l started to worry about my premises, when the landlord started to talk about selling the buildings. It started me thinking about the stability of my studio and then my landlord put my rent up by 50% ! Deal breaker really. Then my son and his wife are expecting their first baby, in October ... in Australia!  There were a few reasons but as l said, these were the two main ones. So from last Friday, my studio no longer exsists but artyfizz the artist ... is still here. I am still able to work with some of my after-school children, due to one of my wonderful mothers, lending me one of their rooms, twice a week. Yeh!   I can still create birthday parties, as long as the parents provide the space, l still provide workshops for schools and l am still creating my own work, from my small studio, at home. So one door has closed but many have opened, elsewhere for me. yeh ... upward and onward as they say! :)
A quick visit to the hospital first. I love this sculpture which is a grandfather reading to his Down's Sydrome grandchild. Someone has put a passion flower wreath around the grandfather's neck ... sweet!

Then once up in town l saw this sign .. made me smile. But l suppose it must work because l noticed it ! :)

Not a good image, as it was taken from a moving bus. But the actual paintings, in "real life", were quite stunning ... Promise !

Then it was home time.
