Hello. I should have posted this hours ago but I got distracted. Got my arty crafty head on again, it comes and goes, it went, now it's back. I'm back on the landscape, adding bits here and there, but my head is filling up fast with other arty ideas. I watched a programme last night about the Royal Academy getting ready for it's summer exhibition. A fascinating insight on how much work goes into putting on an event of humungus size. How the artworks are chosen and set out in the galleries, and the extravagant opening night. The exhibition is on until August so I might get myself down there for a closer look. Here is the link to the BBC website, but it's only available for the next 29 days. It's not up on yoootooob yet, but there are snippets from previous years exhibitions, some more for me to watch later I think.
Me and the pooch went to Barton today. I wanted to see the new open exhibition at The Ropewalk Gallery. He wasn't allowed in so he had to wait in the car. It was cold, and I was only gone ten minutes, so no baking dog to rescue. Afterwards I took him for a walk, and a ride in the buggy.
I took a few snaps of pictures that caught my eye. I am always amazed at the prices people ask for their work. If a lot of detail has gone into it the cost is sometimes justified, but £500 for a few strokes of the brush with black paint, in my mind is utterly bonkers.
As you know I like bold colour, lots of it.
How are you all getting on with your crafty and arty stuff? Any projects on the go? Tell us about them.
Thanks for reading. Toodle pip.
PS. Sorry can't credit the artists, didn't get their names. There was a list available, but it cost 50p so didn't get a copy.
