10. Napkin Diary For May 2014


23rd May

Heard this Margaret Rutherford quote today. It just stayed with me.

“You never have a comedian who hasn’t got a very deep strain of sadness within him or her. Every great clown has been very near to tragedy”

The photograph was taken from ‘Paper Play’ by Michael Grater. It was published in 1972 Mills and Boon. It does not say who took the photograph.

PS.  I’m afraid that I am going to be bombarding you with napkin posts all week. Feel free to ignore me.

I have  made three napkins. One for May (this one), one for June (exhibited at The Mall Galleries, 14-23rd November, 2014), and one for October.

I have actually finished my May napkin. I finished it towards the end of September. However, as usual, I am way behind with the recording of the piece. My apologies for the catch-up frenzy of posts, but I am extremely keen to start on my November napkin. I can’t start November until May is done and dusted, don’t know why, but I just can’t.
