"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."
Helen Hunt Jackson, A Calendar of Sonnet's: February

    Over the final weekend, the exhibition will close at midnight (normal closing time is 10pm). Hockney has over 60 years of work (he's nearly 80). Thanks for this @pridepoc. I'll be visiting London in May so I have put this in my diary to go.

    I was very pleased to fund some lovely prints of some of Botero's paintings at a book market in Genoa. I think I'll be investing in one or two to frame and put on my wall @Monik as a great souvenir of the works of art I saw in Bogota and Medellin last year.

    @mheredge wow that's nice. I can't wait to see which of them you'll choose :)

    I'm thinking of choosing one of his beautiful fat ladies for my bathroom @Monik.

    I think this is one of the paintings they have.




    Though one of my favourites is this one, as it has such a weird perspective.

    wow @mheredge both are beautiful. However, I'm thinking how would I feel having one of these in my bathroom... LOL :D

    What's really interesting is that my friend has found some lovely old tiles in the bathroom under the existing floor tiles, that were tiled over at some point. Unfortunately they are damaged but it's interesting what you find @Monik.
