I had been so looking forward to going to the Hockney exhibition, I hoped it would live up to expectation. Wow...... it certainly did.
I'm not sure that I have the vocabulary to do the pictures justice, but I found them almost spiritual in their homage to the English countryside. The Yorkshire Wolds are an area I have come to know quite well, traversing them to visit family over many, many years. His pictures really capture the feel of the area and the light. I could have wished for less people, to be able to stand further back from the pictures to see the full glory of the huge canvasses. Now I wish I had bought tickets for more than one visit!
Not quite sure how I have the gaul to write this in the same post, but.... I have had two pieces hung in the Corby Open Art Exhibition, now on. "The Rocks of Petra" and "War Torn". Its good to get some textiles hung in these events, just three pieces this time, perhaps more next time.
