Saturday shoppers . . .

I don’t really like shopping . .  . but as Lesley does, it leaves me some time to sit around sketching. When did shopping become a pastime rather than simply a time-consuming necessity? I want to go out and buy what I’ve gone for and then return to a space where I can:

play it

wear it

eat it

or drink it (delete as applicable)

La bella macchina . . .

 

Does anybody remember a film called something like ‘La bella Macchina’ about an Italian family in London and the story of their coffee machine?

The problem is that after a gig I’m always full of adrenalin. So whereas Lesley, who has inevitably driven, is tired and ready for bed, I end up having a ‘nightcap’ –(UK euphemism for YET another drink) -which is often when I draw as well. So after a night at Stefano’s …this was inevitable. I think this is the first time I have actually fallen asleep whilst drawing. There is no other way to explain the curved rectangular appendage which I have a added to a reasonable (though far from perfect . . . . .)  image . . . . . Cheers!
