I have had a hectic but enjoyable day, at the Cardiff Butetown History & Arts center. Helping to put the exhibition together. Well I did the paper work while the rest hammered drilled and hung paintings.
Wonderful lunch ( all you can eat does not constitute to my 5 a day )curry mmmm. Great company and beautiful building. So people please come the opening of The Great Summer Exhibition Bute Street Cardiff Bay on July the 1st 2 till 5.
Work from over 40 artist so something for every one. Who knows maybe the sun will come out???
The day of my degree show finally arrived. All that hard work and planning, we had an excellent turn out and it went by in a flash. The British weather didn’t fail to impress, by gale force winds and lashing rain. … Continue reading →

It is still hot and sunny…really I know it’s the U.K but I am honestly not making this up. Check the news, i am still a little stunned myself, don’t want to speak to soon though as I may jinx it. I love the sunshine, its makes everything look much nicer. Even Newport looks reasonable and that is a stretch believe me.
I was going to write about the 9 hours I spent at the hospital with my pregnant daughter yesterday. I was frazzled and cross when I got home. You know what though? I wont be grumpy today as the sun has helped me chill. Tomorrow i will be finishing my space for the exhibition and actually hanging my paintings. I must confess i am a little nervous, I have no back up ! what if they hate my work???
On a lighter note people I had a b.b.q with my family today in the garden in the sun, it was bliss and my boy Blue got a share of all the meats bones. I am posting his mug shot so you can see how beautiful he is.
There are four shirtless men in my back garden , erecting scaffolding planks!!! it is Saturday!! I think I may have given them a fright when I opened the door with my pale face and piss hole eyes!!! I don’t do mornings.
I cannot sit out there till they go away…they are putting up solar panels, I have begun my wind down from heavy work loaded student life to summer bum. I have read 3 books this last couple of weeks its been such a nice treat.
The exhibition space is looking great , as we all busied painting in un unbelieveable heat, looking like we had been wrestling greased pigs all afternoon, flushed and sweating. ew! I am sad to be leaving and letting go of these lovely people.I would love to do the masters, but financial restrictions make it impossible. We have no money and a grand child arriving in October!!! yeah I know I don’t look old enough. I think I may have to go to the Beach ……for research of course. Nothing to do with the wonderful weather and watching the surfers ( purely aesthetic admiration of course).
It is raining, it has been raining most of the day, the only change is the volume of rain, for example just before I got out of the car to take a large painting into uni….some one unzipped a rain … Continue reading →
