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.
