I Know What I Like

Mrs Blunt and I have long since agreed to differ when it comes to the appreciation of art. She favours a more impressionistic style, whereas my own taste has always been reasonably eclectic.

Just this weekend, I came across a fine artist fellow who was selling his wares via a display of local artists' work in a shopping centre. His rendering of the Yorkshire and Northumberland coastline appealed to me greatly - so much so that I was prepared to risk the wrath of Mrs B by buying a couple of his works on the spot. It may mean one less visit to the beauticians for her each month (for a while, at least) - but what price art, I say?

It's a brave man who accuses Bill Blunt of plugging, but I don't mind spreading the word about this talented individual if it means more people can appreciate his work. Rob Wilson's website is well worth a visit, if only to see a picture of a man with a pigeon on his head.

Mr Blunt, you're a plugger [turns on heels and runs away]

It's nice to know that there are now several places I can rely on blogroll - you are a good egg and I hope not to be a curate's.

Bill Blunt said...

Sir, I doubt very much you and I would have much truck with curates' eggs. It's not our style.

where's the pigeon? I was promised a pigeon?

Bill Blunt said...

You mean to say you can't see those pigeons, nursemyra? There are literally hundreds of the blighters on Rob's homepage. I'm starting to worry about your eyesight...

I am pleased to say that Mr Wilson has (in response to the clamour) re-instated the pigeons on his home page.
