Inspired in a cemetery (2018)

An unusual place to take inspiration it might seem but I love old cemetery's where the headstones are leaning to one side, the sound of the crows fill the air and they are often abandoned, isolated and disused. I could spend many hours there taking rubbings from ancient headstones and using the images to create pieces of art. I did slip and sliced my leg on barbed wire trying to get into a very old graveyard but I was determined nothing was going to stop me....and it was worth it.  

Most of these piece started as rubbings from headstones that date back to the early 1700's and 1800's and were transferred onto primed board where I built up the image with sand and paste. Lichen was added to many to recreate the effect nature has on the old headstones. They were then painted using oil paint and finally a coat of varnish.
