A new friend and an old friend share this blog today. I recently visited my local art gallery, Touchstones of Rochdale, Greater Manchester. One of the fine exhibitions recently opened is entitled Sea. It is a diverse mixture of artists and styles. My own personal favourite was the painting entitled Wave by British artist Robert W Hill (1932-1990). I was mesmerised by it and will be going back to take a second look. Click on the link above to see the work of Robert W Hill.
When I was a teen I read many books about Judy Garland who began life as Frances Gumm in Grand Rapids, Minnesota. The star started out singing and dancing as a child and grew up on the lot of MGM.
