SLATE NO.1

Hawkeye Choice “B”

 

P1020186

 

I love this – it makes me laugh when I look at it. The title is a very poor pun about us having bees in our wall.

I spent a lot of time garnering unto me all the items I wanted to use or felt would express what I needed. That did mean there was a fair amount of detritus hovering around me like a noxious cloud for a little while but it was definitely worth it. It was even more worth it when I got offered many many lovely pounds for it when a friend of a friend saw a photo of it.

Done as a collage on slate it was actually a portrait of a trusted friend I could be myself with, not having to be careful what I said or having to be sensible. As a portrait I obviously made it as personal as possible so it‘s definitely something I wouldn’t have sold or parted with to anyone else. In fact there’s a deal on this one. If Hawkeye wants to get rid of it, it’s got rid of back to me.
