Meanwhile.... here's an ink painting I did when I was a student, from a tiny photo of my great grandmother (my mother's grandmother). It's a good likeness. It must have been taken in the 50s some time and she is still dressed in a late-Victorian style. She was a fierce woman who brought up, I think it was 8 living children - her husband and a 2 year old died the same year. She took over her husband's job as caretaker of a school in Waterford in Ireland, but on retirement came and lived with her daughter & family throughout the war and later. She shared my Mum and her sister's bedroom and made sure they got up in time for Mass. My friends will now be able to see where my profile comes from.

Went to Unity Theatre, Hope Place, Liverpool yesterday to measure up for the exhibition. Sending out postcards with image and lettering, as above, as invitations- info on the other side. Still have a LOT to do.... Private View is on Thursday 30th August 5.30 - 7.30 (theatre-goers will be arriving from 7.30 for the evening's performance) & exhibition will be on until 29th Sep. Open Mon-Sat 12-6pm.
Had a bit of a nostalgic wander around that part of Liverpool. Elegant Georgian terraces, though Canning Street, where we lived in a top floor flat, is still a bit scruffy.
