I am on my way back to the Island from Whitby where I have been getting my temporary workshop a bit sorted. I have to collect my camper which is safely tucked away on a friends drive in Cowes. Been trying to guess some of the painters on show at the Leeds Art Gallery, and failing miserably, but being reminded of styles of painters such as Stanley Spencer, Paul Nash and Ivan Hitchins who are favourites of mine…does this thing have a spell check? – I fear not so appologies at this stage for bad spelling – will have to address that. They are shutting up the “Tile Cafe” here so better get on. London tonight and the Matisse Cutout exhibition before I head finally to the Island.
