    “Sunflowers”

    I drew my impression of our sunflowers in the garden. Vincent Van Gogh is probably turning in his grave.

    In December 2018 on a day when I was starting with “man ’flu“, I revisited CAC Màlaga for the Hernan Bas exhibition, and also ventured into Centre Pompidou Màlaga, for the first time.

    I Feel Fine

    A long time ago when I lived in the Midlands,  Mum and Dad used to go to a country club that was so posh it had its own hairdressers! And even more incredible to me… inside the hairdressers was a jukebox! The salon owner would give Dad the discarded singles whenever he put new ones into […]
