After my visit last week to see the 'rood screen' in St Edmund's church, Southwold, last week I am inspired. I hadn't realized how medieval artists had subconsciously influenced my work for years...... And years! Without me giving it a second thought! Why hadn't I seen it? To tell you the truth, I couldn't see wood from trees, even if I bumped into it..
So after the penny dropping, clang! And thought processes now coming together, I am painting a five paneled 'rood screen' of my own, very rough at the moment but it has potential, the mermaid is a little odd and the designs are a little rough but I feel excited by it, I feel some lino prints coming on next or maybe a collagraph print or two.
On Monday, a walk along the river.. Not my normal photo's of mud, I just couldn't resist this beauty..
