I commissioned my sister to produce something for the forthcoming Glass Vase Concerts on Sunday 23rd May 2010. [Note: there is an “s” after “concert” because there are 4 different concerts in one day.]
Her new work arrived by e-mail tonight. I am very excited about this unique piece of art — the first commission for the Monument House Concert Series.
Before embedding this colourful image in the invitation PDFs for the mailing list, I’d like give Concert Blog readers a glimpse of what to expect. It’s a watercolour collage based on the two previous blogs about this special Sunday.
I hope you can spot the beer mug in the centre, for Robert has brewed another 25 litres. This time it’s “dark bitter with tones of woodiness and nuts” using four types of barley and two kinds of hops (including one he harvested himself). I don’t understand this language of home brewed beer, but I’m sure it would taste wonderful in our Monument House Glass Mugs.
