We went to the Mermaid Arts Centre this afternoon to hear Vyvienne Long and The Balanescu Quartet do a rehearsal for their gig Saturday week. It was fascinating to hear them play, and the banter as they tweaked a few pieces to perfection. It was supposed to be open to the public for half an hour, but 45 mins went very fast. What a lovely way to spend lunch!
In the meantime, I am also working on some new paintings for my Moments series and revelling in my recent acquisitions from London -- Liquitex paint bought at Cass Art in Richmond and my new Van Gogh book with lots of colour pix! I have also been enjoying my various bits of reading, including the manuscript of a novel (unpublished so far) of one of my sisters-in-law.
