  Last week I got back into my writing and wrote a long post, ‘Less is more’, saved it to come back to in an attempt to re read and edit what I am writing and be a little more … Continue reading

Take Five, ‘artists who have lit up the genre’. How one got there.

This gallery contains 3 photos.

It’s about 14 years since I met ‘the sculptor’ and although when I met him he wasn’t practising very much, he did an occasional clay sculpture but he was painting and drawing all the time, as that is what his … Continue reading

This gallery contains 4 photos.

I wasn’t so surprised to see it’s been 24 days since I last posted a blog. Time feels it is running faster and faster. My sister-in-law once told me “life is like a room, in one door, out the other.” … Continue reading

Baden-Baden, Pardon?

This gallery contains 15 photos.
