its been quiet chez Stitch recently – i am aware of that and Im sorry. But, Life has got in the way, as it has a tendency to do. So, I apologise but it was inevitable. anyway, i wanted to talk about a TV programme i have only just discovered…Sky Arts’ Portrait Painter of the Year – DON’T tell me who won, im halfway thru the penultimate episode and Im loving it. Elder and I watched it tonight and he got really into it. Lots of Paris, Matisse, Cezanne and’privates’ (aka life drawing) – I’ve been playing with painting recently and this suits my mood down to the ground – pass the turps please!
