Sunday Ramble and a few sketches possibly a bit of cooking
The idea here is that I cook a late Sunday lunch, make some
cakes and write some sort of blog post, don’t expect that much from any of it.
I will bung stuff up in bits as it happens.
I notice I didn’t post yesterday, my bookshop is busier than
one would expect, given the cold weather, I put this down to a lack of things
to do inside, book browsing is one of the few remaining activates in the don’t
have to bracket.
I went to the Belgian Café on Friday evening here is the
Today children’s clothes and shoes meant Westwood cross, in
my family I am outnumbered by the fairer sex and not liking shopping, having
looked at the artist’s materials in Hobbycraft, nothing on special offer that I
wanted although their canvases are very good value at the moment, buy one get
one free, I went and hid in Waterstones.
Eventually I succumbed to a pot of tea and determined to get
my £2 worth I drew a couple more sketches, the two big faces in the background
are on a wall poster.
Sorry I didn’t get as far as putting some paint on them.
Getting a poster on the wall of people to look like

that I am not sure I really pulled off. well the next batch of pictures went up backwards so from the red writing below upwards.

having got all of that over, is there anything much going on locally?
Cllr Driver seems to have gone critical on the blogging
front with two posts today but related to national news Bignews has also posted
today but again nothing local, so is anything much going on in Thanet? I think
the answer must be, not a lot.
Oh well back to art, what do you think of the video below?
