Paint and more paint!

Deary me it's a while since I blogged...actually I haven't even managed to look at my computer all week. This week is The Winchcombe Festival of Music and Arts. http://www.winchcombe.co.uk/I spent Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday working with the whole local school..210 pupils aged between 5 and eleven.and all working on the same project. I had four 4ft x 7ft cut out butterflies and twenty cutout slot together pieces of ply that made a long Caterpillar ! A lot of fun but very tiring. I had a class at a time and they decorated the pieces..the next class following on filling in the spaces. It was really hard not to join in but I did help with mixing colours, opposite colours that clash and how to hold a paintbrush. Tuesday night was the Launch party at St Peters Church. Jane http://www.windsofchangegallery.co.uk/  organised a great Sculpture show there featuring Rupert Tills life sized sculpture of a child on a pony ! http://www.ruperttill.com
I also illustrated and helped produce a booklet of Poems by Helena Cavan. http://www.helenacavan.com/Our local composer and Poet. Helena and Marcel Zidani  http://www.marcelzidani.co.uk/ performed a cocert of piano and poetry yesterday...all went very well ..standing ovation...wish I could have been there but I was painting a Georgian dresser and doing some restoration on some pieces by Walter Crane. Last night was Ceroc night and tonight is Blues and Jazz. The sculpture exhibition is on till Monday I believe and there are open st. Please look at the Winchcombe website for more details.
