Castor and Pollux at the ENO last night. I’ve never been to an opera before and was not sure if I would enjoy it. This opera got some very bad reviews eg. Alexandra Coghlan in The New Statesman, but I really enjoyed the performance.

Experimenting with stretching canvas so warp and weft are not parallel to the stretcher bars. I might then put a grid on a different axis to stretcher bars and canvas. Lovely and foggy this morning (but cold).

Blockheads at Ropetackle Centre Shoreham on Friday night. Brilliant gig – loads of energy!

Serc V JPEG image of Pillar of Creation – print from Jessops arrived. 50cm x 50cm – wish I’d bought a larger print!

What have I been doing? Painting, painting and more painting. Also making stretchers ready to scale up.
