A Tidy Tea

13 Sep

I held a ‘Tea With The Artist’ event at The Workers Gallery at the weekend, part of my solo show “Yr Helfa / The Hunt“. It was lovely and lots of people came along, from as far afield as Bristol and Birmingham, Cardiff and Swansea as well as local people.

And it was this big, honest mun!

That meant a lot to the artists who run the gallery, Chris and Gayle, who have worked so hard to get this off the ground in the village’s closed-down library.

Who? Me?

It was hectic and I tried to get around and talk to everyone who came.

And there were people of all ages too, which is really lovely. I don’t like those evening private views which are full of posing types clinging on to a glass of wine – I like to see loads of different people having a nice cuppa tea and enjoying the company and the art.

And the cakes. Oh yes. Home made, of course. Traditional bara brith, Victoria Sandwich, some parmesan biscuits, a lemon and elderflower drizzle sponge and dairy-free, gluten-free orange polenta cake. It all went.

So, thanks to everyone who came along and to those who sent their support, I really appreciate it. And if you missed it, the show runs until September the 24th.

The Replacements

And another lovely Baby Boomer, willing to sit for a thirty minute portrait sketch. It’s not easy to sit still and silent and have someone staring hard at you but it’s so interesting for me to be spending this time sketching and drawing. This is turning into so much more than a drawing project. I’m getting such insight into our collective experience as we’re morphing into elders. It’s weird, because it doesn’t seem that long ago we were starting our journey into adulthood, guided by, and rebelling against, our elders …. and now we’re replacing them.

An Early Night

I spent today at the lovely Creative Bubble Artspace in Swansea’s city centre, drawing Baby Boomers. I got through six today, which takes me up to sixty five of my target of one hundred by the end of the year. And now I’m tired so off for an early night ……
