Mannamead Ridge 1 to 3
Wind, Rain, Light
On the Trail of the 27B
A work in progress, a fresh start after my stroke. Inspired by a piece of historic creative writing by Laura Quigley and walking Mannamead Road at night in the rain.
On show at the Artmill Gallery in November.
Stroke Ward Sketchbook and oils on canvas. Current Studio work.
My Stroke line starts on the 19.11.16 on 201.11.16 I was drawing, it was the only thing I seemed to be able to concentrate on, reading amounted to one sentence and then I lost what the article was about. All the tech stuff, I thought I would use went home. Drawing was the only constant that I found able to focus on and maintain for any period of time. No portraits, just the detritus of the ward and equipment that came into view. The last four were different, two at home and two in London recovering from my Gamma Knife Op. More London drawings to come.
Good to be back in the studio and working again.
Exhibitions in November 2017.
