Artist in studio…

But first…
Dulltown, Europe: Today’s random dictionary words are: aba, abature, abactor, abattis, abb, and zwanziger. Please have these words looked up and placed in suitable sentences ready for Professor Mouldie first thing after breakfast tomorrow morning. Should the professor be wearing his underpants on top of his trousers you should not remark on or draw attention to this.

WP F Stu RossHere’s a picture from my days of old style 35mm film and darkroom photography; the negative of this one is long lost, but this is a good digital scan of the one remaining print.
It shows artist Stuart Ross, a chap who I was at art school with, sitting in his studio – he looks suitably pensive doesn’t he? This was taken somewhere in London, I think, in the 1980s.
He’s probably pondering and musing on spacetime, quantum theory, and the nature of reality – or possibly just wondering what time the local supermarket closes on a Sunday…

  1. If Professor Mouldie wants to recreate his fantasy of being superman, who are we to argue! Lovely photo – very atmospheric. He is probably actually “working” and waiting for you to put the kettle on 🙂 I did try and google him out of artistic curiosity, but there are an awful lot of Stuart Ross/Stewart Ross/RossStewart/stuross’s out there, who indulge in the creative arts.

      Ah, Professor Mouldie – what a guy!…
      Stu R: that’s the trouble with people with fairly ordinary names isn’t it?
      I was thinking of following arts presenter Steven Smith on Twitter – Ha!… No chance of finding him!…

  2. I gave it a go, and yes…a lot of Steven Smiths! I found this guy though which may (or may not!) be helpful?

  3. Now you’ve got me wondering if supermarkets were open on a Sunday on the 80’s, but it is that London – heaven knows what they get up to there
