I have been inspired by a fairly innocuous Victorian postcard I found online which symbolises where I come from..literally..
I hope to create a set of three related but different media outcomes from same basic idea. Below some mock-ups of how it may come outâ€¦
The painting below is also a find. Accredited to one Evelyn Fothergill Abbot (her maiden name was Robinson) who lived in Paddington and Kensington and painted in 1932..

It is a hither too unknown to me image actually painted in Long Wittenham allegedly but from angle of hill I would say more likely a view down from the Clumpsâ€¦I will investigate..
Painted the year my father bornâ€¦.Traced the artist..as Evelyn Fothergill Robinson..member of New English Art Club with Alexander Mann and Nevinson etcâ€¦
also connected to Arts and Crafts..exhibited at Baillie and Grafton Galleries pre marriage in 1917!
Here a black and white Italian painting. Also traced title of a Wittenham Clumps painting with harvesters ..no image yet.
I have found a painting titled Autumn Landscape Provence which sold recently for just Â£120!
So there you go back to what I know?…..
As part of the new painting project I also hope toÂ be taking photographs on the spot.
Trailer Starâ€™s English Folk albumâ€¦.I hopeâ€¦.
Finally a new book of poemsâ€¦
