Nice walk along the River Weaver yesterday with Hazel and her train buddy Liz. Watched the boats go in and out of the historic Anderton lift. Lovely sunny day so we had lunch out on the decking over looking the Trent and Mersey Canal. Delicious prawn sandwich, crispy chips and salad. I had a lovely pint of local brewed ale. Walked off this feast by going back through the woods and Carey Park to the car - parked in the long stay car park as all the others were full. Home for fruit and cake in the back garden which was nice a quiet for a change.
Nice weekend over in Marsden, West Yorkshire with our old chum Dave Smith. Hazel took along some pansies to brighten up his sad looking window boxes and pots by the front door. Had a pub meal with Dave and some of his friends - ate far too much and back on the diet again. Pretty uneventful drive over the moors although we did encounter some Bradley Wiggins clones who clogged up the trecherous windy roads on occasion!
A kind of diary, a log, a ramble, nothing to do with the Flowerpot Men. My life as an artist, a collagist, a rubber stamper, a networker, a dad , a letter writer and a postcard maker. Observations about this and that in no particular order.
I grew up in the home counties around London during the 50's and 60's. Went to several art schools including Southend ,Chelsea and Manchester. Trained as a painter and printmaker but now mostly using collage. Collect novelty songs and old mail art amongst other things too numerous to mention.
