The Tide will turn…

I’m taking the opportunity, during my daily walk or cycle exercise excursion, to explore some corners of my local area and, if I can , to ensure I make at least one sketch and/or photograph. I’ve been too occupied by making a kayak in the last few months up until January to do much 2-d art but my inspiration is returning, especially during this period of relative confinement.

A few years ago, I made a short series of edited images with words for the international project “A Book About Death” and related themes, which I will post in due course. It’s been a while but I like working with image-editing software to create something new as a digital collage.

Here, words and image :

I wish you all well, mentally as well as physically.

Forgotten images…

A few years ago, when I lived in Wales, in a period of less work but more creative exploration, I started playing with adding words to photos that had some resonance for me.  This evening I rediscovered a few, inspired to search by a friend’s recent works that combine various media and are being shown online.  One of her recent photos reminded me of one that I took at a studio in an old barn where I used to paint.

Here are a couple, to give you the idea.  I may put up some more soon, from another project.  But now it’s late and I have to be up early.  At present, I have more work and less energy and time for creative exploration, that’s ok, I’ve chosen this.
