"NESLONS AND MANDELAS" -- SuusinMokkum and Val Show All in Maastricht, NL

Well, all our recent Neslons & Mandelas, which are being exhibited at the Cafe Jenze in Maastricht until the end of August;

Here are some photos of them.

(Sadly you cannot see the Neslons in the passe partout frames that we ordered for them, because the frames were of the wrong size. So we had to make do, and make what we could of unadorned Neslons. The Mandelas are properly framed, and look goooooooooooooood!)…

"L'ART DE LA CARTE POSTALE/POST CARD ART" EXHIBITION: MERCI BEAUCOUP/THANK YOU TO.......

all the people listed below who have sent me postcards in the last week or so.

Which means that I've received 169 postcards in just 24 days.

SEE VAL MAKE A 'SANGOMA'....

...in the Beeldentuin Heerdeberg in Cadier en Keer, near Maastricht in the Netherlands.

This sculpture was made on Monday 22 July, 2013.

It started with a 17.5 kg (38 1/2 lbs) piece of Zimbabwean stone, and ended as a Sangoma.

I was helped by Zebb Chakawa (who comes from Zimbabwe).

Here are pictures of Zebb, the original piece of stone, and the finished Sangoma.…

DISNEY FILM STUDIOS HAVE BEEN IN CONTACT WITH ME ABOUT THE REMAKING OF 101 DALMATIONS!

Bonjour,

Disney Studios are considering making a new version of '101 Dalmations'. ("What's wrong with the old version?" asks Snooky).

They have approached ME because they have heard of my 1001+ Post Card Exhibition -- "L'Art de la Carte Postale/Post Card Art".

(And they saw the fantastic "Do Not Open!" video that Jinny Pearce made which I wrote. Hi, Jinny! You get a plug too)

I'm waiting for Walt and his friends to come back to me.

In the…

NAKED WOMEN & POTTERY! One of Val's Rambling Art Stories.

Bonjour!

Look at this Massai Warrior piece of pottery I made, and then I will tell you my story:

Are you sitting comfortably? Then I'll begin.

In my penultimate year at Grammar (High) School, when I was 16, I took an optional (A level) course in Art.

There were 4 reasons why I did so:
