1983



"1983" - 'oil/acrylic on canvas, metal & wire' 2009 (sold)

My father's Ford Cortina, with the back seat I could
lie on, full length, watch the fields belt past
and the rain wind crazy paths down the window.
Doctors and nurses with the pretty girl next door
(always in need of thorough examinations)
Stealing matches from the kitchen and making small fires
in big fields.
Shooting out the windows of frozen diggers with a Webley air pistol.
Catching newts and dragonflies from dirty ponds.
Taking everything I could carry from half built houses in the street.

  2. Steve - this painting looks decidedly acid and "chemical", especially when photographed against the rough brick wall - many congratulations for selling it!

    Your childhood memories are succinctly put and will recall memories in us all - thank you for sharing them in your special way with words..

  8. Thankyou kind people, I'm glad you like my mud avoidence smearing (note; a lot of mud goes before)
    My 'technique' has evolved into a chaotic procedure of absolute random anguish, sprinkled with a momentary euphoric snap.

    I'm glad that this has that, so elusive, 'chemical' feel (ta, Jazz)

    Imp & Megan, thankyou very much.
