I am just finishing packing for a trip to London. 
I get to escape for a few days, back to the big city.
For 18 months I have been waiting to see this;
and this looks amazing
Surviving treasures from the National Museum of Afghanistan
along with the Indian and Islamic Art rooms
then in the afternoon the Royal Academy of Art for the
Summer Exhibition 2011
and somewhere I have always wished to visit;

Leighton House Museum

Saying hello to Darwin at
if there is time a quick look here;

for Camden Town and Beyond

and probably back to here;


With an interlude at


and of course


So, not too much to fit into one afternoon, one day and one morning then.  Nothing like a busy life.

No fashion statements to make on the streets of London; just one comfy pair of trainers, one sketchbook and one small handbag camera (the Nikon really is too heavy to cart around exhibitions).

Bye boys, be good whilst mums away!
PS exhibition is being very well received, though numbers through the door are depressingly low.  Three pictures and one fabric panel sold to date and three opportunities for further exhibitions / shop presence.
