i am rooting though my plan chest drawers looking for paintings of pots and gardens in my archive that are relevant to be current exhibition at winterbourne. i shall pop them into a browser and they’ll be available unframed. i watched a programme late last night about exercise and it said for general well being to keep moving so that is what i am trying to do. this update will therefore be short as in order to write it i have to sit very still and that is just about the worst thing for the human body. i have pilates this evening so there is some slow movement in that and on a wednesday evenings i’ve joined a life drawing class so i shall have to use my imagination to work out how i can move about in that one; maybe i’ll strap my board around my neck and move around like an ice cream seller. this is one of my favourite portraits of the nettlefold children as i can just imagine evie running up and stopping still for just a second to have her photograph taken before dashing off to get on with what she really wants to do. most probably buy an ice cream.
