New Studio!

I am moving to a new studio in North London.
The Abbey Art Centre.
There is a garden with kitties!
And lots of space to paint. And just in time for Spring so my work may have a different feel for a while- green grass and blue skies and such! What colour influences!

I will put up pictures as soon as I take them.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Even if you are bitter and cynical about Valentine's Day, you can't really say it is a modern invention to get us to buy cards, chocolates and flowers, because this holiday has been around since the Romans. Personally, I like to get chocs and flowers more than once a year (and luckily, I do!).
For our Valentine's brunch (nice that it is on a Saturday) I will be making fried bread with a heart cut out of the middle of the bread and an egg fried in the spot. Because I am just that soppy! Holidays, rituals and symbolism are nice, I feel connected with something I guess, a past, a culture maybe. Plus I love hearts and flowers!

Go spread some love!

Snowy London Town

It snowed here in London!
It is unusual and made the international news.
I took some pictures walking from my flat to my studio.
Notice the snow on the mosque in the bottom picture of the bus stop sign.
