Art, 1956, useful stuff and cows
We headed off to Monty this morning to see the artwork of Mr Edmonds one of the founders of the 56 group which was so called because it was formed in 1956. In recent years it has become more well known and is now recognized as one of the very few Welsh based art movements in its own right. We have always said you should try and buy original art if you can, and so we do. And although you might think gosh loads of money it is not true, well not always, as with most things some will rip you off if they can but not if you have a huge dog and a flame thrower. Anyway Mr Edmonds was exhibiting in a pop up Gallery so we went to look as he is a good friend and a jolly good artist.
We now have two little painting of
to hang on the wall with the other painting that hangs on the wall. The dog says
the pictures of Venice
will remind us of the British Summer as all the roads are flooded and the best
way to shop in the big out of town supermarket is in a gondola. The dog has
also added that the betting shop is full of punters (HAH HAHAH HHAHAHH HAHHAH
HAH HAH HAHHAHH hahaha hah hah ahah ha). Venice
I spent the afternoon sorting boxes out from when we moved and moving them from one place to another in order to do some work so they can be moved to another place. Some say we should just get rid of the boxes full of stuff but it is useful stuff, it is not our fault that we can never find the right useful bit at the time the useful bit would be useful. We just find the useful stuff that is not useful at the time we need the thing that is useful, so all those other useful things are of no use at that time. I’m sure there must be a theory about the quantity of useful things calculated against the ability to find them when you need them.
Other things have happened today but I will go now and not bore you with other stuff….. Hang on I will bore you with one more thing. I went and had a chat with the cows in the field next to us, they like a bit of a chat people don’t talk to cows much these days. But the cows were away again for a few days then they arrived back just a couple of days ago. Nothing odd about that only we have never seen them leave or arrive yet in the six or seven months we have lived here, so how are they doing that. Maybe Mr Jones is right they are in cahoots with aliens……
