This picture came about in a dream I had about judgement day, strange I know, I had gone to bed reading the 'Rime of the ancient Mariner' ... That should explain my thought process..
..One thing led to another and while drawing out the figures in the little boat, I thought I should include a judge... A symbolic Jackdaw..
Family connections.... A little potted history.. 'Tiles of tragedy', which are memorials to the parishioners of Brightlingsea who have lost their lives at sea. There are 213 memorial tiles, each is a tile has a dedication and is placed in a frieze which runs around the nave wall of All Saints Church, Brightlingsea.
My connection to them is that my husband Norman is a native of the town and is connected through his family tree to a couple of the tiles.. Click on the links for more info..
