The art Bin

Just been reading an article in the Sunday paper, which makes me feel better, all about the 'ART BIN' .With our move looming and now positive on Tuesday after a very frantic week. I've had a good sort out of old paintings, I've taken some to Oxfam, but some poor others were taken to the refuge centre. I imagined maybe the skip men rummaging in and saving a 'Jane ward original' and taking it back home and hanging it up proudly. But watching them smash the frame, I nearly had to be held back and couldn't watch, even giving a little shriek. So reading about the 'ART BIN' where painting are given and ceremoniously taken and smashed into a bin knowing that there are Tracy's, Damian's and even a few Peter's in there makes me feel a little better. And further down the article it stated' to fail and understand a work isn't that actually good is a step towards self knowledge'  So there you go!! Now I am ready to produce some corkers of orignal paintings in a tidy, for a while art studio. Keep tunning in for photo's of new pad.
