Diana could not go this week either. She says,
'Have had my eyes done. At the moment I am still seeing double and my glasses don’t work. Opticians next week so hopefully it will all be sorted in a few weeks.
This morning I have tried to draw what I can see wearing old glasses working on top of old painting. What was really interesting was that when I took the glasses off I could see double double - instant cubism. I always thought that Impressionism had a lot to do with shortsightedness and eyesight problems. Looking out of the window I have been watching giants walk past (Don Quixote) with more than a touch of Lucy in the Sky withDiamonds. It’s been like living inside a Kaleidoscope.'
Frances had a deadline to meet. ' I was unable to attend today since I had to finish my gothic piece for The Temple of Sound in Mellis! ( Jane and Sally T. are tackling a similar panel). I couldn’t include the gothic top point in my picture. Acrylic on horrible smooth plastic type surface.... Second an oil I have nearly finished looking from Dunwich to Walberswick.'
Thanks as usual to all contributors. Next week Ian will be responsible for the still life and model, and your photos should go to Noreen for the blog.
