Eleventh Carols by Candlelight at St Luke’s church Sydney street in aid of the Alice Martineau Appeal for Cystic Fibrosis

09 Dec 2013

Christmas present

Tomorrow is the big day- 729 tickets sold for the church, 250 for the party afterwards at the Chelsea Gardener. Room for some more last minute ticket sales if you happen upon this and have not yet made plans to come to a carol service in West London!

Just ring the cf trust and they will be able to arrange for ticket collection on the door.

I have been as ever trying to tie up loose ends in my studio but it’s a difficult time of year. Even as one picks the crumbs of breakfast toast from one’s teeth it seems already to be getting dark. Or is it because, having not planned for a studio sale this year as in previous years, I have deprived myself of a useful sense of urgency as we falter into the last weeks of 2013…?

I am very pleased with my work from Wales this year. Blossom and so on. It would be good to make that a focus in the spring of 2014 and do more, and better work in that department. Snowdonia, too.

But I also am ending the year thinking about the 3 or 4 very nice little studies I started in the London spring, which seemed to suggest a happy series in the form of a trip around the Circle line. I am sure it’s been done before. Hell, it’s probably been done by me! But I could do it again in 2014, and better. Like so much.
