I just feel like hugging my flowers ......

I am getting my work all together for the tinderbox group show thats opening on monday omg !
I am not sure how much space I will have so I am going to bring four pieces and see ....feeling a bit funny
it has definately affected my life drawing with every drawing looking like the model was in the womb ...or on an island :)
The cards are a 1970's double pack which I think are really cute with vivid colours and hand embroidered photographed backs....can you see the crazy man and woman bottles ? , no takers yet , another one of my letting go for selling objects !
I am enjoying the buzz of being back at the market altho nobody has much money , they dont mind spending a little bit here and there on fun or quirky things.
The man with the velour horse hat on is my friend mikey staunton ,he reckons he is going to retire soon , he has been selling potatoes ,carrots and parsnips since he was 14 years old at various markets .He is the king of our market in Galway and was crowned and paraded about in robes and all a few years ago he is a gas man as they say around here, (gas as in hilarious!!)
Oh B.T.W mikey is studying the form for cheltenham horse races :)
oh also, I watched little miss sunshine for about the 6th time last night with my 13 yr old daughter omg it is so so good ,if you havent seen it,do and if you have watch it again .
A deep film , humble yet madly hilarious too . Here is the dance scene .
