Most of my inspiration is local, in Oxfordshire or
Dorset. In our low sunlight even humble Subjects
can be very dramatic. I find myself taking pictures
with my eyes and printing them in my memory. A
particular light or atmosphere, or pattern. If they
will not go away, I do Sketches and use Photos if
help is needed.
Then the Composition, Colours and Style just occur to me as I get going. I find rhythms and forms asking to be portrayed in their own right.
This cocktail of sensible and emotional effort leads to something like Cave Paintings, but of the, here and now. These new images appear, hopefully to Decorate and Communicate, alongside all the other images that vie for our attention every day.
I have been keeping my Pictures with friends and family for many years, but recently was commended at Art in Woodstock. Since then I have shown at Modern Art Oxford and during Oxfordshire Artweeks.
This year I have been offered a venue for exhibiting at Art in Woodstock.
