After graduating from art college in 1985, I went to stay with my grandparents at their smallholding in south west Hungary for a couple of months, from August to after the grape harvest in late September.
I recently dug out some old slides from boxes I’ve had knocking around for years and years, and sent them off to be professionally scanned. So now I can see the type of work I was producing over 30 years ago, which has been mind-blowing. Also, quite encouraging. I need to plan to think about preparing to do some more painting.
Wednesday 24 April. At about 7.50pm, I was watching the sun setting at Cromer in Norfolk when I saw the inshore lifeboat east of the pier. As I went down to the beach to get a closer look, the boat turned towards the shore.
A week ago, a truck fly-tipped a load of waste onto the little road I can see from the back of my house. They did this blatantly and in broad daylight on Saturday morning. Within a couple of minutes they were gone.
