Au Revoir John Bellany

john bellany picturesMoving house is very traumatic but having to sell my 2 favourite paintings (John Bellany's wonderful 'Self Portrait with Owl Mask' which I bought from John in the mid-1970s, and his 'Self Portrait with Cat' bought a few years later at auction)is a real wrench but the new walls will not take such big pictures... c'est la vie. Alas, I shall be watching them go under the hammer at Lyon & Turnbull's contemporary and modern art sale on 1 September.

The Festival is now in full swing and I just love Edinburgh at this time of year. I don't know if we'll manage to get to as much as usual but, as always, the streets themselves make the whole town seem like the most colourful stage full of thousands of extras.

Aberfeldy are having a break just now, recharging their energy cells for their UK tour in September. The Word magazine have chosen 'Hypnotised' for the front cover CD in the September issue, out in the next week. I like The Word.

Until next time... au revoir.
