Patrick Heron

The last time I went to the Tate Modern, it was to see a Cy Twombly exhibition. It was a bit of a treat, as although I go there quite often (that stretch of the South Bank from Waterloo to London Bridge is one of my favourite parts of the city), I don't remember ever having paid to see a specific exhibition, because there's so much to see for free anyway. Well, my friend is now a member so we got to see the Cy Twombly for free, which was great. I love gallery shops, and almost always buy something - usually a couple of postcards or a notebook. This time though, the paintings we saw had made me feel quite inspired, and I ended up buying this book on Patrick Heron, who I'd heard of from the Tate St. Ives. When I picked it up I thought it'd be horribly expensive, as it's really big, and has loads of images, but it was quite reasonable and I thought it would be a lovely addition to my pretty much non-existent (non-fictionally) library, which it is except my bookshelves are too narrow so it just moves from surface to surface in my bedroom at the moment. 


Stocked Up

It's been nearly a year since I signed up for a shop on online emporium Etsy. Well, I've finally got my act together and stocked my shop, with eight of my beeb toys, and three in a new series of paintings that I've been working on. This is a very exciting day! Now I just need to get the word out to get some some people through the virtual door of aforementioned shop, and fingers crossed make some sales.... watch this space!!

I've also just added a link on the side of the blog that shows thumbnails of the items in my shop, and takes you straight there.
