Me looking brave before taking to the air (and the wing) of the plane. Wow, it was cold !! But the whole experience was totally exhilarating.

Jan's Blog

Computers and the internet are amazing things. One of my concerns with putting together this site was that it could remain current, yet with all my travelling I've often much to say, but little time to say it. Years ago when reading the news it would take me days on end to reply to the kind letters people sent. Now, with the magic of the modern age, I can keep you up to date with what I'm doing and other events in my life.

ANDREW HEWKIN - Artist

Date: 13th November 2012

Andrew's show at the Cork Street Gallery has now finished and many of his work have been sold but if you look him up on the Internet, you'll get an idea of what was on display.

Andrew goes abroad every year for a period of several weeks where he makes sketches and takes photos and then he returns and spends the remainder of the year completing his paintings.

His latest exhibition was of sketches and paintings from scenes he encountered whilst on the yacht Silolona - made in traditional old style and owned by an American woman - Patti Seery.

The exhibition was entitled 'The Equatorial Archipelago'.  What I like about Andrew is that from time to time he produces a beautiful book of his sketches which is within the price range of most if you can't afford the actual works or have no more wall space on which to put them  - so  I bought  a book which will give me endless hours of pleasure.

I must admit that when I heard the yacht was owned by an American woman, I had imagined she'd be  just another rich American.  How wrong I was - at the Gallery I had at least half an hour of Patti's time and was entranced by her, her vision and her love for and appreciation of the Indonesians.    She commissioned the yacht  and used only the local Indonesian workers -  it  took two years to make and was a labour of love.  

If I win the Lottery, I'm booking myself a berth for the holiday of a lifetime.

I will ask Andrew if I could show you one of his paintings because words cannot do justice to his work.
