I had a great time at ‘An Evening with Cezanne & Friends’ on Friday held at the Enterprise Centre in Tottenham where 6 of my paintings are on display until Wed 30th Oct for their BHM exhibition!
We had just the right amount of people for the seating capacity, and I enjoyed explaining the process of writing my Self-help novel and performing poems ‘My Artist Child’, ‘Love Attraction’ ‘A Dedicated Writer’ and “I Need a MAN!” with saxophonist Wadada and acoustic guitarist Theo Calliste (the edited version – the full version is over 9 mins long, you can listen to it on my Soundcloud!). I showed a short video of an interview I did with sculptor Rudolph Mendoza where he was explaining one of his carvings ‘The Building Blocks of Society’. Brothers Everall and Burrell Hall who are also exhibiting talked about their work too. Then the soulful Asabi Hawah captivated the audience with her singing/spoken word and guitar playing!
Here is a video about my art which I had wanted to show but due to a technical issue was unable to:

I also gave away a FRAMED PRINT and s SIGNED COPY of my Self-help novel in my raffle (well they actually had to find the hidden black butterflies!)

MY NEW BOOK!
One last thing, my poem “I Need a MAN!” forms the foundation to my next book ‘How to Get the Ring on Your Finger’ which I aim to have completed by the middle of November! It will be a FREE downloadable ebook from my website (paperback copies will also be for sale) and has contributions from THE BROTHERS giving their advice on what to do and what would make THEM put the ring on a woman’s finger!
I’m organising the Book Launch for around the third week in November – more details to follow! If you’re not on my Mailing List ‘follow’ this blog for updates!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend, see you soon!
Touching the Heart…through Art!
