My last two cp drawings have involved rooms in an old farm building. I’ve enjoyed both of these works and am keen to draw more, the only drawback being that I haven’t any further material to draw (sorry for the pun) upon. I shall wait until another opportunity comes along. There are a number of historic farming properties not far from where I live, and I intend to visit some in the new year.

In the meantime I have taken an interest in fireplaces, both outside and in. The two examples posted today are from Cheshunt (top), while the bottom image is a photo of a fire that my eldest stepson Matthew, built and lit a couple of years ago at Brushy Lagoon, a popular fishing location about an hour’s drive from Launceston.

I am currently working on an idea for the latter. This is to be a religious drawing titled, “Liar, liar, liar”, and is a commentary on Peter’s denial of Christ, and our own denial with a ‘twist’,  that it’s set both in the past and the present. It’s still a work in progress, but I expect to draw up the details this week.

This drawing will not sit comfortably with some people, in fact it will be quite confronting. Artists have a responsibility to tell it how they see it.

    So – will 2010 be the year of the fireplace? How about doing a fireplace with a bread oven – like many historic ones in the UK.
    Love the look of that top fireplace – it will suit your style very well methinks. I can’t believe how organised you are – prolific too.

      Good idea Gillian, I shall file that one for future reference. I had another idea from researching my latest drawing that I will publish on Christmas Eve. I’m not sure if fireplaces will be a theme in 2010, but it’s a start! I will write a post before the end of the year concerning goal setting.
