Journeys - Stories of the World, at the Orleans House Gallery by the river at Twickenham. Inspired by the personal effects of explorer Sir Richard Burton (not the one who married Elizabeth Taylor several times), local young people and artists from around the world have created diverse responses.
Richmond Printmakers. Also delightful, and very informative on the different types of printmaking.

|'Moretonhampstead to Fingle Bridge'|
I've just done this small edition of silkscreen prints entitled "Moretonhampstead to Fingle Bridge" inspired by a walk last Easter when we found celandines, Brimstone butterflies, sweet scented gorse and these lovely guinea fowl feathers.
The prints are an edition of 10, signed and numbered, 460mm x 380mm and priced at £80 unframed (+ p&p). Let me know if you'd like one.

Always keen to support the local community, Ellen and I enjoyed a lovely cup of tea in Upsy Daisy Bakery, on King Street, just on the south side of Ravenscourt Park. The place is bright, airy and pretty (with lovely toilets, too). Although I thought they were a prime target for some Starch Green ceramics, I enjoyed their Burleigh Asiatic Pheasant very much. And I loved the daisies on the tables.

This is, I hope, the Mandarin for 'Happy New Year'. Or in Cantonese 'Sun Leen Fai Chok'. The more common greeting amongst Chinese folks, and remembered from my very early years in Sarawak, is 'Gung Hay Fat Choy', an expression I always find very satisfying to say.
This delightful little film welcomes in the Year of the Rabbit, and says goodbye to the Tiger.
