these next photos are of a sketchbook page from the time after I spent a vision quest day out on the land here , thinking a lot about connectedness .. feeling my connectedness with the place where i sat for 8 hours .. and this felt pen doodle became a painting . It goes round the edge of the deep canvas - the way i often work ..
( this text has decided to centre itself in the middle .. I like this colour , but i can't remember how to set the text back to the side , it seems to have a mind of its own . I am clearly more at home in my painting studio ...)
and finally , another progression from pen sketch to paintings - this one came to me when i was driving down a country road , and i heard it from the old oak trees on the hedges ..
