REPORT ON LAST SATURDAY’S PREVIEW

It all went jolly well and I’m looking forward to throwing open my side gate again next weekend and the weekend after as part of Coastal Currents Arts Festival 2015. Full details available here.

Overheard last weekend -

“Distressing.”

“Why?”

“Apart from all that, the biscuits were delicious .”

“Oh that reminds me, we need to buy some Vaseline.”

Right, I’ve [...]

ONTO …

… something new … perhaps.

My afternoon nap often throws up an idea or two.

This afternoon I awoke with the thought of ‘words in cages’.

We are becoming more and more restricted in what we are allowed to say although no malice or prejudice is meant or intended. This is worrying.

What is more worrying, for me, is [...]

STOP GOING ROUND IN CIRCLES!

There is a roundabout on Hastings sea front that is causing quite a kerfuffle. Please read about it here.
We now have the stick-in-the-muds who just want the rather sad looking fountain renovated and that can only be used when it isn’t windy because in those conditions cars using the roundabout think they’re in a carwash [...]

BUSY BUSY BUSY

I’m turning little soldiers into sailors ….

… well, swimmers really, and I’m redesigning my Hastings Eye into something a tad more recognisable.

The local residents are crying out for more stuff and nonsense and I will NOT disappoint them!

WHEEL OF FORTUNE

This might look like an old bicycle wheel to you but to me it looks like the basis of a major work of art.
Thanks to my nephew Anthony for providing the wheel although he has no idea that I purloined it yesterday. Luckily he was distracted bouncing his son up and down on his knee. [...]

PLAQUE ATTACK

I was down on the cliff top this morning admiring the Angle of the South when I noticed that my back gate had been vandalised!

However … on closer inspection I discovered recognition at last!

. …….. or it could be wishful thinking I suppose.

OUT OF THE MOUTHS OF BABES

Best quotes from the first weekend of my open studio exhibition during the Coastal Currents celebrations in and around Hastings.
Lo, she is a terrible Goddess – “It’s a gas detector. We can’t afford to feed a canary.”
Me as a lovely couple left – “I doubt whether you’ve got any friends but if you have, please [...]

ON SOUP DIET …

… or to put it another way, Open Studio! Time is running out!! *starts to panic and calms down with a gingernut which ruins the diet immediately*.
I’ve discovered that I’m not the only gay person in the village who is opening up their inner sanctums for the Coastal Currents extravaganza during the last two weekends [...]

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 residing outside [...]

I WONDER …

… where this will end up.

I bet Mr Moon knows.
