Swingboats in Woolacombe


The winter population of Woolaconbe is very small (around 1,000), but during the summer large numbers of people come to the village for their holidays. Many are motivated to visit because of the excellent surfing conditions found locally. There are many hotels, holiday flats and bed and breakfast establishments, and most of the entertainment opportunities are aimed at tourists. A long-established attraction in the centre of the village was a crazy golf course which featured North Devon landmarks for the holes, the unique model buildings being constructed from the various types of stone found in the local area. This attraction was demolished and rebuilt as a pirate themed crazy golf course in 2010.

#Painting from life is a bit dull

Sometimes you just have to get back to basics and do a simple still life – returning back to the basic skills of painting a real subject is an interesting exercise – even if not very rewarding.

Wine Bottles – I have decided to call this study ‘Home Brew‘.

You can’t beat a good bottle of hangover inducing parsnip wine which usually weighs in at about 13% alcohol and is usually drinkable about 6 months after racking off…

A wine bottle is a bottle used for holding wine, generally made of glass. Some wines are fermented in the bottle, others are bottled only after fermentation. They come in a large variety of sizes, several named for Biblical kings and other figures. The standard bottle contains 750 ml, although this is a relatively recent development. Wine bottles are usually sealed with cork, but screw-top caps are becoming popular, and there are several other methods used to seal a bottle

I am delighted to say that a blog I write on ‘Online Marketing‘ is in the blog charts for the UK. See below:

  • The act of being creative is a love hate thing – The Beauty and The Beast someone fetch a priest  (ref. David Bowie)

    Beauty and the Beast (French: La Belle et la Bête) is a traditional fairy tale. The first published version of the fairy tale was a rendition by Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve, published in La jeune américaine, et les contes marins in 1740. The best-known written version was an abridgement of her work published in 1756 by Jeanne-Marie Le Prince de Beaumont, in Magasin des enfants, ou dialogues entre une sage gouvernante et plusieurs de ses élèves; an English translation appeared in 1757. The tale has perhaps been made most recently famous by the retelling in the 1991 Disney film.In Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia. liberated 12:47, April 7, 2011, from: http://en.wikipedia.org


Another Technorati Article

20111006-230103.jpgWell here we are and there is a great spread out in front of us – there is: roast chicken (my favorite) two iPhones, carrots and peas, a Samsung Galaxy, potatoes, gravy and an iPod Touch (not forgetting a bowl of salad). I have been looking forward to this all day. I only managed to grab a small sandwich for lunch while I slaving over my iMac.

The best thing about my iPhone is my WordPress app. The WordPress app allows you to update several blogs from one device, moderate comments, create or edit posts and pages and add images or videos more easily. The best feature is the ability to add a photo quickly to your posts. This was more difficult to do with the earlier versions of the app.

The Art Business is tough!

Below is a link to an article that explains how I feel about running my own small art business – what is the point?

Article Published on Technorati.com

Owning a small business requires a lot of faith and belief, you need to believe in your product (after all it is your baby). To simply survive you require enthusiasm, conviction and self belief. I have all this and much, much more…but it is so tiring!I’ve had enough! I want a job (maybe not a career) that provides a monthly salary, one that gives me a specific amount of cash flowing into my bank account every month. I want stability in my life and the support from a reliable, proven employer. I want them to pay my income tax and healthcare – I want paid holidays!

My heroes have grown old with me or they have died – maybe their death has been a way to freeze time, stop the aging process – not only for them but for me also?

‘Peter’s exhibition was inspired by iconic images he used when he was at art school in the 70s on the theme of Beauty and the Beast – inc Sid and Nancy and Guy the Gorilla! – and I think the results are really bold and impactful.’I have always been a hoarder, newspaper clippings, postcards etc.It is only now that I have decided to recycle them.

Guy the Gorilla (May 30, 1946 – 1978) was a Western Lowland Gorilla (Gorilla gorilla gorilla) which was London Zoo‘s famous resident, something of a celebrity in the 1960s–70s and was often profiled on kids TV shows and natural history productions. Guy the Gorilla was one of London Zoo’s best-loved animals.He arrived at the zoo on 5 November 1947,  Guy Fawkes Night, hence his name. He was a tiny baby, weighing just 23 lb (10 kg) and holding a small tin hot-water bottle.
