Feeling a bit blue...

It's been a bit of a blue day. Perhaps it's the cold, grey, wet weather.... Dropped Turtle and Mu at Spanish and pottered about in the local bookstore. I found a lovely book Grace Kelly: A Life in Pictures by Pierre-Henri Verlhac. To quote Publishers Weekly "Kelly's radiance, both on-screen and off transcends the pages".

I also found the magical This is for you by Rob Ryan. A romantic and touching story of thoughts and dreams. Each page has been cut out of paper using a scalpel, sprayed and photographed. He has an etsy shop where you can buy his amazing work, plus a great blog.

Back to get the boys and home to find an invite to a Simon Ogden exhibition opening at Bowen Galleries. Simon uses the colour and patterning of 'found' materials to make wonderful collage compositions, like Minevois Flower (2006-2007).
