Boris and Polly have been re-located
This week has been a busy one so far. I posted Boris and Polly the other day and hopefully they now have a new owner. It was sad to see them go, but I am keen to clear the way for new work and clinging onto older pieces isn't a very good idea in my world. I need to keep some bits back though - for exhibitions - but I felt that Boris was not suitable material for the SBA exhibition this Spring and if I get a slot in the gallery I've approached in Richmond, I'd rather use new works. So yes - Boris as gone and so has Polly. The good news is that I have got limited edition prints of Boris available, which you can get here.
Boris the Broccoli, Watercolour, 2012
I have been busy tidying my room and trying to sort out all my Bare Necessities by logging everything in a spreadsheet - it takes most of my time these days, but I am over half way through my 12 month measuring period which is the good news. My room did pong a bit the other day because I got a bit behind! This isn't very nice, but it is an incentive to not get behind in my data entry. I just have lots of birthday cards and wrapping paper to do now - the non-smelly stuff. I am not sure how I am going to work out how much wood pulp has been used on all this cardboard packaging, but I am sure I'll find a way and then I can get cracking on with the painting itself.
Diana and me outside the Temperate House, Kew
I had a lovely walk around Kew Gardens on Wednesday with my housemates. Although I work here I don't do long walks around the gardens that often. I know the temperate house rather well because it is close to the gallery! It's always a treat bringing friends into the gardens and showing them around.
