Tonight Will & I fly off to UK. He’ll be there for a nice few weeks’ break. I’ll be there for many weeks – not quite a ‘break’ from work. I’m off to study further – for the Children’s Book Illustration MA at Anglia Ruskin in Cambridge. Excited and daunted.
Here are a couple of pictures I sold a fair while back. Memories of Moon Festival on the beach in Stanley, and of all that happens down in Victoria park. Goodbye Hong Kong!
And here’s a last piece of work I put together for St Stephen’s College in Stanley; an anthology of students’ work over the last couple of years. Lots of lovely work – hard work for us all on that Creativity Course, but worth it.
Really relaxing evening last night, sitting drawing 2 semi clothed models – often together, sometimes separately, posing by Jimmy Lau’s clever sculptures. Wine, music, the one hour session was just too short, & too many poses held for too short a time, 2 mins, 5 mins. But I’ve never drawn 2 models together, relating to one another – I’d love to do that again.
Here are 2 photos, though of the models standing separately, don’t have one of them together, but from my drawings on the floor you can see that they were together sometimes. Somebody asked me if I was drawing with my red wine. Bit of blue in the second drawing below, no blue wine.
As I hadn’t managed to take photos of the opening reception as all was just too exciting that night, yesterday I did catch some folk looking at my pictures, so here’s a photo to show that people did look at them.
I intended to take photos last night at the opening – too busy, and just forgot. So I have others’ photos. Sold a couple of picture though. I took some photos when we’d set it all up anyway. So here are photos of before, during and afterwards.
Entrance, part of my display.
Tony Chi Cheung’s impressive sunflowers.
Our great coordinator, Helen Boyd before and beside her display.

The picture has just been bought by a lovely couple who are off to live in France. I hope it’ll provide lovely memories for them of their time living in Hong Kong.
Please come! It seems as though I’ll be able to display lots of work in this huge space, alongside artworks by my lovely friends.
There’s an elephant in the garden:
