Unfinished ( only just started) altered portrait number 3. I tend to start with the eyes or an eyebrow. Who knows how it will turn out… The eyes are speaking to me so I will carry on.

Last week I went to the Frieze Art Show in London. There were no typewriters but many pairs of fancy pants parading around.

Not really a surprise!
Ok, have a good weekend x
