In 2010 as my mother was in the final stages of Carcinoid cancer I took a walk down a disused railway line in my hometown that used to run from Didcot to Southampton.
I used it as the beginning of a NTU M.A. in Multimedia. A year later it collapsed and I restarted it as a Fine Art Drawing M.A. instead after she passed away in 2012.
As my mother worsened I continued to visit her and that track and walk it and remember the times I walked and drew it in the early 1990s.
Here is an image from a small sketchbook drawn on the 1st August 1990….I dated everything in those days.
I however had not forgotten that Track project and always thought it would come back.
