Mooching with Mum

The morning lurking about with Mum, chatting and eating toast and jam and then making off to the Brighton Museum and Art Gallery. There are two rooms full of work by women artists, and we looked at these quite carefully.  A piece by Alison Smith, who seems to be little known, which made us feel a woozy with its strange perspective and unsettling air.

Then off to have another mooch about by the sea and thread through the streets and the park. Eventually we had a snack at Délice in the North Laine before we lunged off to the station. Mum had a soup and a hot ginger beer. Sad to see mum go off this afternoon. Then for me off to Sainsbury's, then some tiresome house-related admin and a bit of work on the book.

A quiet night in eating fish, steamed vegetables and brown rice with my Lorraine.

Below Country Sunday c 1934  by Alison Smith whose dates are unknown. Looking at it with Mum made me curious to know more about her but a google search reveals little.
