Went to this this morning.
Big Q but worth the wait.

Hi, Anthony

Glad you enjoyed it. I've seen two BBC News videos of this show and they both make it look unmissable. Such variety! I'm sure this is going to be one of the most successful exhibitions of the year.

I've missed your daily doodles. I haven't visited the forum for yonks. Arty Ted and I had a disagreement. He banned me from leaving comments, and I put forum emails on my blocked list. So I'm now completely out of touch with it.

Hi, Rebecca

Yes, it's an original twist on the traditional display in galleries. Terrific idea and, from what I can see in a small graphic, very well executed. Love the cigarette.
