I live on a narrowboat on a canal in a green and leafy valley surrounded by hills and wildlife. So why is my art often dark, ominous, disturbing, strange and otherworldly? Weird, huh?

Standing Stones
The standing stones, shrouded in the early morning mist, seemed to be levitating.

Watercolour, ink and silver metal leaf.

The original is available to buy at: www.etsy.com/uk/shop/CroakingR…

At the Edge of the Forest
The water level in the canal dropped dramatically revealing a part of a large concrete post that my boat is moored to.

'The Farm' Launderette 05
Photo taken on last week's visit. Bags had been moved to reveal a previously unseen bit of damaged concrete. Rich pickings :D (Big Grin)

For a bit over a year I've been doing an experiment: to create a large piece of work. Usually my ink drawings are tiny (the largest being 8cms square) and I wanted to see if I could knit them together in one drawing. Inspiration came from a Soundgarden lyric and with Chris Cornell's voice in my head I picked up my pen. It was an auspicious start.

The nearer it got to completion the harder it was to complete and I bottled it. I stopped at a point I was reasonably happy with for fear of pushing too hard and it going too far away from my initial vision. So here it is: Colony (in my gallery) which, ironically, went way away from my initial vision!

But now I am going back to the original to push a bit harder. (Another song lyric, Nostalghia, I think).

Crikey, I'm a little stunned! Your comments and support mean a huge, I mean HUGE, amount to me. I'm at work (first day back) feeling a bit meh and here you are putting bounce into my spirit. I'm honoured and very grateful.
