Land emerging from low-lying clouds on Laig Bay – a gentle return to the 50 paintings series after my brief holiday! There’s always the slight worry that after a break it’ll be hard to focus but I find that I’m welcoming the peace and calm of familiar routine
I was in London to see a Scott Matthews gig, then in Birmingham where I caught up with friends (I lived in Birmingham for a couple of years while working as an arts curator for the NHS). It’s a somewhat maligned city but with over 8000 acres of parks it’s actually one of the UK’s greenest cities
I used to love the walk to and from work through the parks of Moseley, Edgebaston and Selly Oak (it was the work aspect in the middle that I struggled with – the NHS management division didn’t turn out to be the ideal climate for a creative mind!)
So when I return I always visit Canonhill Park to reconnect with its geese, squirrels and trees, and just for today I thought I’d post a few photos taken over the years..
(In the next week I’ll be posting about Eigg’s Eco Centre and also talking to Camille Dressler, one of Eigg’s historians. I’m also hoping she has some archival photos of Eigg’s past inhabitants to share with us)
