Elton plays Patriotic Piano

Lee & piano

Busy couple of weeks getting the dear old piano up and running again for her re-launch in the Plaza on Oxford St. Meeting up with my old friend John – the piano puner and John Ellis (aka Elton John) who did his tribute act bringing the mall to life last Wednesday. The piano had been languishing in the basement of the arcade since last summer and has finally been re-assembled, cleaned and had the paint work re-touched ready to go to a new home which will be decided by popular vote. The choices are between Nordoff Robbins, Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity and The Brit Trust.

What a delight to see the piano being played with such gusto and attracting lunch-time crowds – many taking photos – wonder how many will end up on Youtube etc?

More lunch time ‘tributes’ will take place Weds 17th (Sinatra) and Weds 31st March (Stevie Wonder).

There has been more international exposure in an Istanbul Art Gallery who saw my work at the Florence Biennale and I am delighted to allow them to represent me. They are able to accept the paintings unstretched which makes transport so much easier for me and means I can re-use the stretchers.
