A (sort of) photo essay taken yesterday about determination in the face of illness and debilitation.
A stack of my sketchbooks – all used. These are my A6 sketchbooks from the last 18 months. I have one of these with me pretty much all the time. When I can’t create any other way I can move a pen on the paper.
Proof of determination. A symbol of me keeping on with keeping on.
Here’s 4 canvases in their box waiting to be painted on. Larger than the canvas I have been using I am determined I WILL paint on them. Somehow I will.
A groggy self portrait with the clutter and mess of my studio behind me. Looks like a load of junk but everything has a job and is a part of some creative process – be it for cameras or for painting.
If you click on this photo you can see it on Flickr complete with notes of what’s on the table behind me.
