|The bottom line! Read the poetry|
Monday, 21 November 2011
Hooray! I am now working on the bottom line of 'Warhorse'!!! Yes, the bottom line of squares in the artwork will be the row where viewer will be able to actually read extracts or whole poems. The text will go from one side of the artwork to the other and enable people to look back at the image and capture the mood of the painting through the poets words as well as the text painting itself!

This friday silence fell as Britain paused to remember the war dead. I was asking my daughter Joselina about what they did at her school. They did what the rest of nation does and stopped to reflect on the sacrifice of those brave men and women who fought for our freedom. Jose is just 5 years old and last weekend I talked to her about her great great grandfather Wilfred Barrs who died in Ypres in October 1914. She told me she was thinking of him.
