Maybe the rich and famous would like me to photograph their boats :). Actually they don’t have to be famous, rich will do nicely :).
Edit: After reading a posting on Facebook it got me thinking about the difficulty that I have writing about my work. Something that I’ve come across on another site that I frequent that likes the poster to write five lines of text to accompany a posting.
I find it very difficult to describe my work in more than general terms such as painterly, textured and general descriptive terms such as location etc.. I find it impossible to write in to a work something that simply isn’t there. My works aren’t inspired or influenced by anything in particular, they aren’t social metaphors or symbolic of anything, they are what they are!. This is a boat going down the river, nothing more and certainly nothing less! :).
The River Thames at Twickenham.
The River Thames at Twickenham at low tide. Funny how I so often arrive at the river and the tide’s out. :). A flock of geese had just swooped in low over the river and landed. I didn’t intend for this work to be black and white but I didn’t like it as a colour work. I actually like the river when the tide is out as it gives some foreground interest and I like the textures in the mud.
