These photos popped up in my Facebook ‘memories’ from my trip with daughter, Hannah to Kathmandu in 2013

They seem to be wiggling their way into my consciousness

Maybe they might seed them idea for new writing, or a painting maybe

I’m on the train from Belfast to Derry, after a few weeks over in Wales visiting family. Back in the studio tomorrow I hope

These 3 paintings are unusually simple and delicate for me. They were made by transferring some paint, with marks I particularly liked, from canvas onto unprimed birch panels. The image was made by pressing creased tissue paper onto the canvas and then transferring the ‘print’ into the panel. I suppose they are mono prints of sorts.

I’m not sure how I will seal them, probably a coat of oil and cold wax medium when they are fully dry in a few weeks
