who stole last week?

I just don't know where the time is going, everything seems to be so hectic at the moment. Of course I have 'got my head down' again studying and juggling 2 modules this time is causing my head some confusion but I am hoping that will sort itself out as time goes on. Along with this I seem to be zooming all over East Anglia at the moment. Last week I visited Cambridge for the Private View of the ERTF's first exhibition. Mary Cozens Walker opened it for us and said some lovely things about my work. I thought she may have forgotten me, as I was a student of hers, but she came straight over and gave me a hug and talked about the work I was doing with her and how I'd progressed. She had her daughter with her (another old tutor of mine) , Kate green ,who said I had made an indelible impression on her. Now this may not be so good- one would like to think that they remembered you because you were an excellent student but possibly I just made such an impression because I made their lives hell! anyway they both seem to have forgiven me if I did so alls well that ends well.
Saturday I was off to Suffolk to collect my last module's work from its second marking- this box full of stuff is now extremely well travelled but has made its way safely back again much to the Cat's delight as she enjoys sleeping on/in it. Although this module was a bit of a drama the marks were definitely worth it now I just have to keep that standard up.
Yesterday it was back up to Cambridge to steward. The exhibition looks very good and I've posted a couple of pictures so you can at last see my pieces in situ. I would like to put more up as the work there is excellent but I'm never quite sure what to do about this without getting the artists' permission. Its been extremely busy- we had over 60 visitors yesterday which isn't bad for a Wednesday and apparently they were inundated over the weekend esp. as the exhibition was closed on Sunday morning for a private event put on by ERTF with Michael Brennand Wood.
So that's about it for now. More studying this week, up to London for induction day for JCS on Saturday (must remember to take all the stuff for the presentation I'm giving) and then back to Cambridge twice next week. I think by the end of September I will be glad just to be back to studying.

Well done on the latest module - it feels a bit scarey knowing there are marks this time! Rather you than me juggling with two modules... I've got my work cut out already with Visual Studies. But I don't need to tell you about that ;)

Love the leaping fish piece, and i'm intriged by the 4 piece in one frame mounting, looks stunning.

I laughed out loud when I read your comments in regard to Mary Cozens Walker and Kate Green. Thanks for that.
And what does ERTF stand for again?
The exhibition looks marvelous and congratulations re: the two modules at once. I know that I would not be able to do that. Keep posting about the experience, please.
