THE ARTY TOURIST GUIDE

East Sussex is full of interesting places to visit and many have connecting themes.     The Long Man of Wilmington is a hill figure on the steep slopes of Windover Hill … near Wilmington surprisingly. In sight of this, although quite a long way away, is the fascinating Farleys House near Chiddingly, which has […]

GOOD LUCK!

  I’m very lucky. I have the time and inclination to change this …   … via this … … and adding it to this …   … to make this.     Now all I’ve got to do is work out how to display it in a freestanding position in the middle of the […]

LAST THROW OF THE DICE

This weekend is the last weekend of Coastal Currents Open Studios and, so far, it’s been grand. I’ll be adding some of these … … to the Mad Hatter’s tea table as a friendly nod to Tracey M&M’s notorious ‘My Bed’. I hope none spill out though … … as I don’t particularly want any […]

IS IT THE ART OR THE LAVATORY?

Using my super power of peripheral vision I noticed that many visitors to my Open Studios didn’t do as they were told. They missed out on this. I wasn’t surprised but I must admit to some disappointment. Ho hum

THE DIE IS CAST

My work is done. Everything is in place for my Open Studio exhibition ‘Thru the Keyhole’ and I’m ready to throw open the side gate. The responsibility is now firmly in the eyes and minds of any visitors. I shall, of course, be there to make cups of tea and coffee and hand round the […]

THE SOLUTION TO FRETTING

I have come up with a brilliant and effective solution to stop  people worrying about all those silly, unimportant things.

It was very freeing but the worries about […]

REVVING UP …

… to a climax Coastal Currents Open Studios 2015 starts in 4 weeks. I’m doing a pre-Open Studios press party in 2 weeks. The local art critic, Percy the pigeon, has just left his comment … and fertilised the garden. It’s an ill wind. What larks Pip.

IT WON’T BE LONG NOW

The Coastal Currents Arts Festival 2015 will be kicking off shortly. The brochure is very shiny and very exciting. Hastings and it’s environs will be awash with all things arty. Click HERE to download the brochure. In the meantime the key to my personal success will rely heavily on trying to expand my taste away […]

OPEN STUDIOS 2015

Later this year, September I believe, I’ll be throwing open my side passage so that peeps can gawp at my doings and wonder. A typical conversation from the last time I participated in this annual vibrant Coastal Currents cultural event ran along these lines. “Why do you bother?” “Everest.” “The double glazing company?” “No, the […]

THE BEST LAID PLANS

Well, I thought that Dickie Bird Van Dyke would end up here … … sitting on the roof of the Cliff Top Residence … which it did briefly. Unfortunately the light was wrong for a large proportion of the day and it looked rubbish so I had to remove it (not easy BTW). It’s now […]
