No garden? No steam trains? What have I been up to this week?
Well, I've been helping an old friend, Brian Alderman, establish a web presence to publicise his work as an artist. His site has just gone live here: brianaldermanart.blogspot.com. It's a work in progress, but I think we've made a good start.
If you are a curler of my generation you will certainly know Brian. He curled with Graeme Adam, became a curling commentator (listen here), and was even the Royal Club secretary for a couple of years (see his pic here - although the moustache is long gone!).
He lives now in the Yorkshire Dales where he has his own studio. You can see some examples of his work painting local scenes here.
Check out the blog/website that we've put together, and contact Brian with your comments. He is keen to take on commissions too. And knowing Brian, I'm sure he would be delighted to see you if you are down Hawes way anytime soon.
