This image is cropped from one of the paintings on the MA module on Landscape. The idea is to relate landscape to biography, emotions, life events. There’s good relevant evidence for this. Just as many authors subconsciously or intentionally rely heavily on biographic details , so artists embed facets of their own psyche into their work. I’ve enjoyed working on this theme and the frequent visits to The Water Meadows. The atmosphere of the place encompasses elements of things I’m trying to portray.
I’m now looking forward to the exhibition in August where I’m showing the results at The Freudian Sheep Gallery which promotes emerging artists and despite my age, I feel that I am at last , emerging. I’m starting to realise that I’ve always been an artist and that a lifetime of ‘doing art’ is only now joyfully coming to fruition. I want another 10 years at least to achieve my dreams.
