The Arts School – the start

So I have been quiet because I have been busy! 

1) the boy who will be 7 months old next week, amazing! 

I could spend all day watching him learn the world! The greatest time consumers!

2) The Little Art on the Green, more details next week


And 3) 

I have started an arts school! 

The Arts School will start running day courses in Drawing and Mark making and Reflective Practise. Come and spend the day on a beautiful farm in East Sussex. 60 acres of woods, fields and lakes. A delicious lunch is included, provided by Sam. So excited! A few spaces left for our intro day on July 8th and confirmed dates to follow!

It’s been a while, and may be a while more 

Who knew babies could suck time away from you! 

It’s been almost 5 months since he arrived and it’s wonderful but gone to fast!! 

We are making progress on the home studio with the aim of getting some work done, even if it is at the pace of this charming snail I helped cross the road this morning whilst walking to be neighbour to feed her mummy pig.

Spring is here to inspire us!

You can’t imagine

  

You can’t imagine 

You can’t describe

The feeling of excitement, guilt, gratitude and pride 

And being naughty , So rebellious!

We are on a plane 

We are actually going 

France on holiday!

And there is nothing wrong with him 

A while more recovery from being so sick

From all the machines 

All the operations , 

All the drugs, 

All the care

But we are here, 

together on a plane 

Because of one persons gift

And lots of doctors, surgeons, nurses, HCAs, 

Physios, nutritionists, radiographers, intensivists, 

ward clarks, cleaners, porters, blood product donors,  

All of them 

They made this moment

You can’t imagine 

You can’t describe

The feeling of excitement guilt, gratitude, love and pride

Sitting on a plane with the man I love

Going on an adventure

Amazing experience! Hosting Anthony Schrag

A little while ago I saw a friends Facebook spot about an artist doing a pilgrimage from Deveron Arts in Huntly, Scotland, to the Venice Biennelle, by artist Anthony Schrag. I offered to host the artist for the night when he made it down to Kent. Last night we had the priviledge of his company. What a lovely, generous man, project, and concept. I need some time to process, but wanted to share and ask everyone to follow his blog and support the project! Click on all the links for more information! 

My first thoughts: 

The magic of the world! Whilst we discussed the oak tree sapling Anthony is carrying, the sapling of a Jospeh Beuys oak, we were also looking for a postbox, and as we took a turn, there was a big, square, brick and red post box, beneath a giant oak tree! 

The world is full of inspiring, interesting, generous people.

Here are some picks! More writings to follow, I feel I need to go on a long walk!
