It's been a while. My painting very much dried up, and I'm still not doing much at the moment, though my upcoming holiday may change that.
Most of my time has been spent listening to music and discovering the joys of steampunk. It't funny, but I was there when the term was invented, but only recently realised how much of a culture it had become.
Last year I went to the Paul Klee exhibition in London and it helped to lift my spirits. One of the things which most annoys me is when I get minute gaps op paper showing through when I don't want it to. It was joyous to find it happened to Paul Klee as well, but he left it as is and his art didn't suffer. It makes me feel better about my art.
It's festival time in Peterborough this weekend. The Willow Festival is free and mainly local bands, but there are quite a few young bands in all genres and it should be great - last year's was. You don't need big names to be good - the big names had to start somewhere. The band I most want to see are Josephine and the Artizans who mix classical and hiphop. They are awesome - look them up.
My wife is close to publishing her first novel via Kindle and will soon be posting her book cover and some excerpts on DA.
Hopefully some new art from me soon as well.
Time to stop being miserable and catch up
