24 March 2011 Birch Hotel launch party

The Birch Hotel in Haywards Heath launched the opening of their new restaurant yesterday with a live singing harpist and really great canapes. Of course my pictures of Venice on the wall make all the difference :-)

10 March 2011 East Grinstead, Anish Kapoor, etc

A couple of days ago I received a call from the organiser of a local Sussex arts society saying that they had suddenly been deprived of a speaker/demonstration-giver for a society meeting. Please could I step in. So I did.
Yesterday I went to East Grinstead and met twenty or so enthusiastic art lovers. They gave me a cup of tea, and we had a great time talking and laughing while I painted this small picture to show them some of my techniques.
All too soon it was over. I am chuffed to find an email in my inbox inviting me back in the future.

Last Monday [the 7th] Fran and I went to London to see a show for her birthday. We met a couple of friends who were over from New York and went to the V&A for lunch. We also took in the Anish Kapoor sculpture that is showing in Hyde Park as part of an exhibition at the Serpentine Gallery. Here is a shot of us looking at the C Curve mirror piece. [Yes I know we are upside down!].
