On the move

Have just returned from a Retreat week with a group of Buddhists who follow the teachings of the Vietnamese zen monk Thich Nhat Hanh. It was great to be able to take time out to focus, and I enjoyed it all.

I have been reading the Art Festival Guide by Maria Aranho. It is so full of good sense and I feel much more settled about what I must do in preparation for showing the work. I would recommend this book to anyone starting up in the business of selling their work to the public.

Back for a few days and then we are off to Portugal (Oporto) for a week, where I hope to see some contemporary art.

More information on
Hope to fill in on more information as time goes by. In a few days I am going for a mediation retreat for a week in a converted farm with no central heating. This being a cold wet winter in the UK is quite a challenge. My mind is more on warm blankets than art just now.

Hope folks like the images, there is just so much to learn, but I keep pegging away.
