art is a guarantee of sanity (louise bourgeois)

my parents wall with a painting I made for their 40th wedding anniversary in 2003
I got to my beloved portobello market and found this little book it is resting on my blanket from when I was a baby that my mum let me take back to Ireland

portobello flea market

interesting exhibition where my parents live entitled play
I have been away from my work for what seems ages.
.......as the mighty artist louise bourgeois said
ART IS A GUARANTEE OF SANITY

So true- that's what keeps me sane really- art-art-art!
I am glad you made it home even if it was a 24hour thing! What an odd thing to suddenly be restricted from flying...!
Great images- have a lovely day-
