I HAVE BEEN HUNG.AND I MAY BE IN THE MONEY!

Which,obviously, is not like being hanged.

Our small show is up on the wall at the City Library. Nothing flash, like an official opening by some local big wig. No free booze and little cheesy things on sticks. Just pictures on a wall.

But because some of you have asked…here are a few pictures.

 

 “In Transit”    “La Vinuela Goats”

 

“Close of Play”

 

One of Alison’s lino cuts.

 

 

Alison’s “Nest”

 

I expect Alison will post more about these, and other, pieces on her blog.

As for moi…well, I’m so excited that I may have an inheritance  due. Yes! Something in the order of almost  ten million dollars. Left by my Uncle Frank, who came to an untimely end in a car crash. And it must be genuine, unlike those Nigerian scams, because the letter came from a proper lawyer. In Spain.

I know Spain is in the deepest of doo-doo right now, but I don’t think this will pull them out of the fiscal fire. And La Policia might frown on such nonsense, too.

As for me…I smelled a rat right off the bat cos there was never anyone called Frank in my family. Pity. I could certainly use the money!

  2. Lovely to see your pictures and Alison’s. Love those goats!

    Bad luck about the money! Would have been handy, wouldn’t it? How dare they mess with your head like that!

  3. Oh – it’s so nice to see your art on the walls! I remember how you sketched while we were in London.

    You had me going there with the uncle frank inheritance.

  5. I adore your goats, and am partial to Alison’s crabby owl as well. Congratulations on your hunging (as opposed to your hanging). Shame about good old uncle Frank though.

  6. Your pieces are lovely, as always.

    You got me. I thought you were taking the letter seriously. Silly me.

  8. Sorry, Andrea, but I believe this is MY Uncle Frank…

    Anyhow, congrats on the hanging – are they done with pen and water colour… I tried to do something like this last year… it almost worked… but that was the thing, I did over work it! You have a light touch… and obviously know when to stop.

    • Well, I suppose we could be connected. Frank apparently came from the engineering branch, not the Civil Service. If I did have the cash I’d deliver it personally, via New York!
