Every utensil in the kitchen


Here’s another of my drawings that will be in my exhibition in August at the Gardens Gallery. It’s not all about washing up or cooking but more about a state of mind if I’m going to be a bit pretentious about it. I’m keen on cooking and a little less keen on washing up, but when in the heat of the cooking area I’m prone to use anything that comes to hand in my search for culinary excellence. I’ve assumed that this is a British trait, but I bet that it is common in many places.

I’m looking forward to showing my latest pieces of work in the show. It will be interesting to see if anyone will buy them. I’m keen on dropping into exhibitions of art, and in all my travels have never once seen anyone with images of barbecuing: Barbecues , or as here a pile of washing up. So, hopefully, there will be something unique about the show.

For more about it take a look here: Pont: Graham Laidler, and the British Character The exhibition runs from August 16th at the Gardens Gallery, Montpellier, Cheltenham for a week. I hope you’ll come along. There will be prints of the originals for sale in addition to many original black and white drawings. You can see more about it here too: My gallery page which is my brand new website.

In common with many British people I’m in France at present on my hols and as the British say, “we’ve brought our weather with us”. Here’s a shot I took just a few days ago, black sky and torrential rain followed me around. Shorts still in the suitcase, some would say that’s a blessing.


At least the trip has given me the chance to practise drawing rain. Drawing rain…

  1. Hello! I just wanted to say how much I enjoy your blog. We met at a clown workshop in NYC and I have been following you ever since. Thanks so much for the wonderful thoughts, drawings and pictures! And good luck with the show!

  2. Yes, those more prosaic, dare I say mundane, subjects are what interest me the most, which is what attracted me to your blog. Mum’s a Brit ex pat (Cheltenham then Poole) so these images are very rich to me. Hope you do well at your exhibit!
