Alo1

From Street Artist to Saatchi Gallery. The very first time I saw Alo on the walls of East London… I was blown away with the colour and design! I’m so pleased the Italian artist is about to make one hell of a splash into the artyfarty art world. I very much hope thou that Alo will still paint on the streets and not just sell out to canvas in galleries.

Can I really write about Goya and John Dolan in the same post?
They both have a dark side and a love of art. Maybe even trains!
Having just returned from Slovenia and this time I got to see the Goya exhibition in Lendava Castle.

John has just had his life story published and I took my daughter along to meet him and buy his book for her at the Howard Griffin Gallery, Shoreditch, London. “The Dog Who Changed My Life”….. Of course George (The dog) is the real star. I guess dreams do come true if of course you wake up!

As our nation morns our fallen overpaid footie players let us remember that iconic year of 1966.

Imagine one day we just might blossom with the sweet taste of fruit but for now just read about it.

Give me life for one last early morning stroll

If only to smell the waking landscape

Admire the woodshed

Make love among the waving corn

Smile at a perfect garden

Sketch with Goya

Fall in love with Slovenia
