Silent Light, coloured pencil on pastel board, is nearing completion. I have taken a break from completing it, but will do so next month. I still need to work on the left-hand wall, the floor and add a little more to the door.
I’m pleased with its progress and once it’s finished I shall put it away and enter it in an art prize later next year.
The room depicted has long since known any human company. The whole building was incredibly quiet when I last paid a visit. The only thing ‘alive’ in the room was the dazzling rays of the early morning sun as it penetrated the window and came to rest on the rubble-strewn floor.
On the mantelpiece sits the famous Cheshunt mug, making its fifth appearance in as many drawings.
There’s a lot of history in this room; many stories to tell, but no-one to tell them.
