What I really dislike about 'blogger' is that it seems so "thick".
Most likely it is me that is thick, but after having spent a hour writing a post and then realising that I had left a picture out I tried to correct it and typically lost everything.
It is a bit of a bugger as I was in one of those moods where I was enjoying telling and writing about things.
Now of course the "moment" [or hour] has passed and I don't intend to re-visit what in my mind is now history, so instead I will just show the pictures that related to what I had written about my recent adventures and the artists connected with them.
I will re-visit at least one as it relates to lots of things in the future but until then.
Here is a painting by Rosalind Lyons Hudson.
She spends a lot of time at the 'Shakespeare Globe Theatre', re-creating costumes, scenes and events. This painting is from 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' and features the fairies.
'Peablossom, Cobweb, Moth & Mustardseed'.
Suffice to say I love it.
The next picture is one of the new creations by Michael Parkes.
Of this I will say no more [I had written a load] as I will come back to his new work soon.
The ceramic clocks are by Ross Emerson, and I really can't write again about him as I have spent 40 minutes telling about my recent [nightmare] trips to visit him.
But here anyway are the remaining unsold pieces from those trips.
Lastly is a painting that I have "lusted" after and wanted to exhibit for so long, it is titled.
"Polly Vaughan's Swan Song", by Kate Leiper.
I think that it is so beautiful, innocent and fitting to the season, it featured on our
If you know of the story of 'Swan Lake' then you can probably work out what it tells of,
she has been shot by her lover, a Prince.
Sad, beautiful, innocent and childish.
Whatever, I will take pleasure everyday looking at it while it is here,
and I will be so very sorry to see it go.
Sometimes I really would like something to keep for myself.
But, go it must for that is the nature of what we do, I do miss some things more than I should and I certainly know that this will be one of them,
but after all we are a just shop and selling our goods is what we must do.
Still at least for a little while this is mine.
