New work- Ken -(Love, Hope, Faith and Peace)

I’m currently doing a drawing of a lovely old man that I first met in 1991 when I was doing my MA on the de-industrialization of the West Midlands Steelworks where I painted a series of portrait studies of old steelworkers. I met Ken at Glynwed Foundry in Cradley Heath – ( long since gone) and we’ve kept in touch over the past 17 years and I went to see him just before Christmas and look a series of photographs of him to develop into paintings and drawings. More to follow soon so when I’ve finished the draing I’ll post it up.

 Anne brought me a camcorder for christmas so I’m hoping to work out how to do some shore video blog entries soon too.
