Beeswax from Mel & Zoran | Tricks of the trade

This will make paintings smell delicious for years on end.. The highest quality beeswax from their hives - To be made into a painting medium after a quick immersion in pure turps.

In use it creates a 'sink back' into the linen however, keeps a trace of the dynamic brushstroke

Inert non chemical medium - *Lovely*

(apparently these cones are made as superflous additions to the working self generating hive)

Can't wait to use it.. Thanks.. *Busy clever bees & M+Z*..

The razing of Penny Cottage

Another lovely beach vernacular family house is erased, the Condorising | Bottonisation of Dungeness beach continues.
We wonder to whom these brutally voguish constructions actually appeal to...

*I.M.O. - If it continues at this pace (2 historic houses demolished per year) this unique beach will soon resemble an abandoned back lot from an architectural trade show.

Without people, no communal points of reference, nothing to hang the stories on, a void.
