Walk thoughts

photo....Common Sun-star

The recent storms and high tides have reeked havoc on the point. The road has been damaged and the way is now closed, hence the reason we had to walk all the way to the lighthouse, in the cold and wind. Not what I had intended, my arty meander was now a major slog. I still enjoyed myself and I hope everyone else did too.
there was loads of stuff washed up along the beach. there was a 4 foot difference in the sand level in places, leaving lots of exposed concrete from the old road and a large shingle bank near the wardens cottage.
That feeling of bleakness was never more apparant, I was actually pleased to return home to a steaming hot mug of tea.
Thanks again everyone, I hope nobody feels the worse for wear, just envigorated and enthused.

concentric circles and spirals were the order of the day.
I love the brick orange it contrasts so well with the landscape, pity it does't always look so good on a building.
It was a great afternoon, ending with a really red/orange sunset.

monday 5 march 2007

met up with an old friend today, had a good walk, thanks.
university of Leeds students looked into the studio this afternoon, thanks to them i hope they like the artwork on the web.
it was quite windy today, nice and bright. i found an interesting piece of leather, formed as if used as a legging perhaps, it dried to a wonderful rippling shape.
Naturally created forms are often more intriguing than something one only imagines.
