d’you ever get like that? Everything seemed to go wrong, but finally it has come together and it looks pretty nice I think. I’ve got the depth I was after and the many layers of meaning of this kind of image. It’s not very large: 27” by 40” . I’d love to do it much bigger, but I’ll cogitate upon that for a while!!!
This is the 9th or 10th piece in the industrial series I’ve been working on for a year or so now…see more on my website and the second one I’ve done based on a colliery. It’s not so long that these big winding wheels were a common site in Yorkshire (where I’m originally from) and Durham, where my grandfather was a miner. A giant, ominous wheel of fortune…if all went well there was a good wage and free coal, if not…a terrible loss.
Phew!! thank goodness it’s ready for the photographer!
any comments (positive or negative one can learn from both!) gratefully accepted.
And , if you have been, thanks for reading! I’m off for a walk now while the sun is shining!
