Chasing Art


Drove to Newbiggen by the Sea this morning to view the progress of the beach sculpture . Two people , man and woman , to be called Couple , on a plinth , placed out at sea assisted by a crane . When the tide is out they appear on a pile of rocks , as seen left . But when the tide is in , presumably they will appear to be out at sea , surveying the scene BBC NEWS England Tyne Giant coast sculpture installed
Misty day , unsure whether the soft focus shot to do with the mist or the zoom lens .
Followed by a trip to Barter Books to buy presents and reading material as I have had to resort to re reading ( for the twentieth time possibly ) Margaret Drabble , A Natural Curiosity . Part of a trilogy this is one of my favourite recovering from migraine books . I know the story and the characters so well that reading is effortless , comforting .
And finally Ikea . I knew when I spotted a wood cabinet with basket drawers that I would find a spot in the house for one somewhere and sure enough , I found a cabinet shaped gap in the bathroom just yesterday . Delightfully installed already , it looks perfect and sets off D's window painting of this week to perfection . We spent a happy fifteen minutes in there placing and re placing a tissue box to best effect . This decorating lark could turn out to be addictive . the porch is looking a bit down at heel , not to mention the kitchen. Hall , landing and stairs ? Possibly .
