Full English:
Happiness on the Thames

 
My daughter, who attends the University of Edinburgh in Scotland, is meeting me this week in London for a whirlwind tour of art galleries and museums, long leisurely strolls through the city, unapologetically 'touristy' high jinks of one sort or the other, a day trip to Oxford, and daily—yes, to the horror of cardiologists everywhere, I intend to eat at least one per day—full English breakfasts. (Some people have bucket lists; I have this.) As you read this, we'll hopefully be making our way from the House of Illustration, to the Tate Modern, the Tate Britain (via the Tate Boat, naturally), the National Gallery, the National Portrait Gallery, and Chris Beetles. Maybe not in that particular order, but rest assured: The Happiness of Art has, indeed, gone Full English. Who knows: I might even take a sketchbook. ;-) Cheerio, m8s!

"Have you ever stopped to ponder the amount of blood spilt, the volume of tears shed, the degree of pain and anguish endured, the number of noble men and women lost in battle so that we as individuals might have a say in governing our country? Honor the lives sacrificed for your freedoms. Vote."

"TWENTY bridges from Tower to Kew –
Wanted to know what the River knew,
Twenty Bridges or twenty-two,
For they were young, and the Thames was old
And this is the tale that River told:"

About Me

Hi. I’m D.E.Uhlig. I’m an artist, author, husband and father.

For as long as I can remember, I have loved to draw. Years ago I gave my wife a hand-drawn card for our anniversary, and she loved it so much she made me promise to ALWAYS hand-draw her cards. Then our three kids made me promise to do the same with their birthday cards. And when I posted some of my drawings online, people began asking how they could purchase my work—so I created this newsletter. I believe in something I like to call “The Happiness of Art” and I hope it makes you smile.
