Spring is definitely springing here in London and that’s fantastic. The winter seems to have whizzed by here since the snow at the end of last year. Can’t wait for summer and people to start taking their clothes off. Ohhh !!! Did I say that?
A few years ago I was able to spend sometime working in printmaking. I developed some portraits using the etching process on zinc plate. This 35 mm photo originates from my father who took the picture at a wedding my parents were attending some years ago and I thought it was a great portrait of my mother (who later bravely fought the onset of multiple sclerosis), showing her in conversation while wearing one of her trademark hats. I put this up today as sadly it marks the first year of her death . RIP Mum.
I met Izzy some months ago and we embarked on some ideas for her forthcoming album. She is fabulous to work with, evidently very talented and has an infectious sense of humour. We are now working on her forthcoming cd, but in the meantime enjoy some portrait pics….
Crawling round on all fours on a village green on a busy (and sunny) Saturday morning in February is the kind of activity that will get you noticed. However Willaston is a very English village, and very charming with it and in that truly English way everyone who saw me shabbing round in the dew getting wet and muddy clocked it and said absolutely nothing. I wish I had more time to appreciate the living world around me.
