Shall we have a thing today, or a string, a string of things? A string of means, of beans, of runner beans, a string driven thing, the thing, The Thing? Thing is, hang on, let’s have some Thing…. There’s been no time for things, what with all the things happening right now, paint comes before words and this week lots of other things have had to as well. This week has mostly been about painting fresh growth on found packing cases, that and leaving things….
WHAT PRICE ART? Today and for this weekend at Cultivate, you set the price on ALL my work that is in or indeed outside the space – You can name the price today on any of my pieces in the gallery and I will accept the offer with no discussion, no debate and no reaction other than to take your price and hand over the work. Only rule is no more than one piece per person. This included the big packing case pieces painted this week
Things? No time, here’s some Thing….
