Unofficial pop-up gallery at Anglesea Abbey, Cambridge

Posted On: Saturday 1st February 2014
Summary: So I set up my own one-picture gallery at Anglesea Abbey. I won't tell if you don't.

Here's the small oil pastel I painted in the gardens on ply board. Later on we had lunch in the restaurant. The next photo shows a view in the restaurant fron our table, but maybe you won't quite see my painting which i sneaked in next to the box of biscuits. I thought the biscuits complemented my sketch rather well. It's probably still there. We left it to fend for itself - apparently Munch used to leave his painting outside in the winter to see if they could look after themselves.

Before leaving it I scribbled on the back this website and address and the follwing message: "If you like this, take it, and maybe give something to charity." Well, something might happen....
