Art of lostness (1)
The image above dates from around my 16th birthday, in 1972.
Improvised, freehand, with nylon tip pens.
Hit by a virus, at present, my ability to concentrate on writing is badly affected; together with low mood (anxiety and depression).
For the first time since launching this blog I feel unable to compose a weekend post.
But, unwilling to give up completely, decided to add a sample of art.
Mentioned previously: frustration at being unable to find a scanner compatible with an ancient computer.
Not satisfied with my photography, I recently took some work for scanning by a local printer.
I started drawing as a child, totally self-taught, mainly in pencil or ballpoint pen.
Later being given a set of nylon tip pens. These, for lack of “proper” art materials, I carried on using. Struggling toward expression and a certain sense of beauty.
Shall commence by posting images separately, seeing which are more popular.
Then collect all together on a new page once the series has progressed a little.
Hope a few of you will like them?
Wishing everyone a happy new year!
