The last few days have, at last, seen some sunshine. The spring this year has been very late and we have had a lot of rain. From the depths of a long winter we have gone straight to high summer heat with April temperatures being broken. However, my studio has its own version of air con - it is a concrete building that never warms up- and I still have my padded shirt on. I have been doing a lot of finishing stuff, plinths mostly, for the 'Hampstead Art Fair' and 'Testing 1,2,3.....' The paint has dried really quickly in the sunshine and I am wearing my padded shirt indoors.
