My course is going OK'ish.. A little strange and trying at times, not so much about Early Netherlandish Art and its Influences. But a little point scoring seems to be going on... 'How many saints can we name'. Which makes it all a little tedious..
We are meant to be looking at art and social climate of the Fifteenth Century Northern Renaissance and the artistic techniques of the painters of the time... Not so much of that so far.
It is like a select club, that Sandra and I were not invited to.. A closed shop/coffee morning with a medieval attitude...We paid the fee! 'They, not all', get the course for free! WE want our money's worth! .....Moan over!

Just need to get a large bottle of Gin.
Makes me think of cold winter nights snuggled up by the fire..
A visit to the Braintree museum to see EAST- 'Making a Point' exhibition.With Stephanie Moss, a wonderful local textile artist, who is always an inspiration.
I found this book in a local church St John the Baptist in Layer-de-la- Haye book sale. A beautiful church built in the C14.It is a wonderful 1960's church needle work book, shows you how to make cassocks and other clerical attire. There are also patterns for kneelers and a few angels and thrown in for good measure.. And... A little childish giggle..
...To work the cock!... Which tickled my wicked sense of humor.
And lastly on my work bench, a few 'Angels' in waiting..
