Brighouse Live Room

Brighouse is famous for it's brass band - the Brighouse and Rastrick Brass Band. So Suki and I decided to use their 70's chart topping hit the 'Floral Dance' as the music in this video short of the Brighouse Art Circle. It made it lots of fun. I hope you enjoy it as much as those who were at the launch at Suki's birthday party last week.

Undercliffe Cemetery

A little while ago I went for a walk with Suki's manager Sue. It was her birthday. Perhaps it was because the birthday was one of those with a zero on the end that she was feeling her mortality - so we walked up to Undercliffe Cemetery.  Here are a few photos that I took while we were there.

A painting by David Thomas hanging in Helen Peyton's fascinating Smart Gallery in Skipton, West Yorkshire. I have one of David's paintings hanging on the wall facing me. It was a Christmas present from Suki.
