Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

Vanishing acts

This was a display of work by the artist Lalla Ward in the National Theatre on the South bank of the Thames. The exhibition was called Vanishing Acts. Inspired by nature the textiles were beautiful but difficult to capture because of the reflections from the glass display cabinets. This was my favourite. Can you spot the frog?













Also displayed were wood turnings by Nicholas Kettlewood

  2. Great exhibition but the guy did not turn the lizard. Turning the wood is the easy bit but I love the way he has carved the lizard using the same wood and grain then matched it in. Now that is clever.

  6. Shame to put the textiles behind glass, but I can see the frog easily enough. I like the design.
