Show & Tell

Ooops! It's nearly one month since I've written a blog post!I've been busy with things that have taken me away from my studio, but that's OK, life is enriched by all manner of events. My other half had a fabulous show last month, the private view was so busy and as always I never got to speak properly to anyone as there were so many lovely people to say hello to. His work always amazes me, he is so modest about what he does, I'm so proud of him!If you didn't get to see the show fear not, he produced a newspaper that is like a substitute for not being there called 'There Is Only Time', full of photos and words, you can get it through his website or his Etsy shop. I cannot choose one picture out of the many as my favourite, but here's one I like....

The Other Half's new book came out at the same time, the first part of a trilogy called 'The Invisible Kingdom'. I really enjoyed reading it and looking at the detailed illustrations. I'm  looking forward to the second part so much, I need to know what happens to our young man......

I went along to the gallery on the day that he was signing copies of his new book. It was very busy as you can see, the queue snaked its way around the gallery. I just popped in to say hello, I took this photo from outside, it was such a wet miserable day, but it was happy and positive inside....
