TAKE COURAGE



Every train journey into Charing Cross, the old brewery sign TAKE COURAGE fading on the wall beautiful message for the day - how many others had taken it to their hearts - strength - manna.



This work is about journeys - on material paper with ink, graphite and paint  - with gratitude to these messages of hope mysteriously given.

In the shadow of Mount Hood
Oil on gessoed canvas



These recent paintings came out of revisiting Wasco Warm Springs Reservation in Oregon. With powerful breadth of vastness, colour and history within the earth - this experience of encountering once again, brought more primitive marks to the canvas, over awed, small, with the immenseness of place.
