Hertford Art a day-out

Pictures taken  in Hertford, on my walk back to Hertford East Railway Station
I try to visit the exhibition each year,
this year the painting that got my vote was 
a very striking bright vibrant swirling modern    Acrylic work by Raymond Whyard
titled Castle Combe.

In-respect for other artists work you will just have to imagine the scene    



may 15th: keeping things simple

as monday 14th rolls round into tuesday 15th, my brain was not ready to turn off

i was restless, not knowing what to do with myself, but wanting to do something

i flicked through social networks and blogs with little satisfaction, and i eventually went to bed with the latest issue of The Fly to read about Grimes (even though it is hard to read about a creative when you want to be creative)

but before all that, i did open up an app on my gizmo and drew a simple self-portrait

may 13th: all that remains

the very front facade of the Gun and Magpie pub is now all that remains, and i presume that even that will be gone tomorrow, and within a few months we shall see some shiny new flats sat here instead.

it is sad to see this pub disappear, not that i ever visited it on anything like a regular basis, but more for the fact that the Gun and Magpie was an easy landmark to spot, representing a marker in a journey and proving easy for giving directions from.

may 13th: weird

a creatively vandalised sign, seen along the river as we cycled from Enfield lock to Tottenham Hale and back again.

may 7: Robin, the teen wonder

messing around with a free app on my gizmo using the basic pen tool included and refusing to spend a fiver on new brushes

I had woken up early and couldn't get back to sleep, so I drew a few of the things I could see around my front room, of which this is my favourite

May 3rd: Job Centre

i sit and wait to be called to a desk
i sit and wait
the room is lifeless
as souls are sucked out of their hosts
abandon hope all ye that enter here
