Back in Margate again for a second look at “Self” the exhibition of self portraits, once again an impressive exhibition, I don’t think any of the visitors to it are going to be disappointed. Well apart from a few art critics as always, whose job it is to criticise so they often miss something that just works well, has an atmosphere or whatever it is.
As always with an art exhibition that does it for me, I was just gagging to draw after about an hour of looking at it so a cuppa and a sketch in the gallery café.
Book recycling day today, which is when we take a Volvo estate full of books for recycling.
I should stress that I see pulping as a last resort and first they go in the 5p and 10p per book section in the bookshop, and then in the 5p and 10p overspill section in the bookshop and if that fails then it’s paper pulp.
Only a small amount of books that we bought for stock today, just one pile as you see
I was pleased to get the Al Murray book though, I think he is the only one of our Thanet South PPCs that have produced a book.
On to Broadstairs and lunch at “The Intolerant Wife” all day breakfast for me and very good it was too. Sorry I never seem to remember to photograph the food until after we have started polishing it off.
I was still in sketching mood so another quick sketch in there too.
