‘Our Lady of Guadalupe’ came from Mexico - a port-of-call souvenir from playing the USA Lefendary Rhythm & Blues Cruise. Here she’s reflected in the shiny front of my Beeton resonator guitar. This photo was part of the CD package design for my ‘Blues for Hard Times’ album.
Another photographic image from the ‘Blues for Hard Times’ album - this moody shot of my Beeton resonator guitar was taken late at night, against a looming deadline for album artwork! It marks the beginning of my recent love affair with photography and folk art...
So many relocations! This little painted & decorated canvas was photographed on a ’bed’ of maps from the local phone book, just before we left town to search (again!) for a new home. The song of the same name can be found on my ‘Professin’ the Blues’ album, and is inspired by a sermon from The Preacher based on Jeremiah 6:16
A detail from a series of pieces responding to the many ‘flood’ stories of the Clarence River, near my new home. The background are layers of glues tissue paper, soft pencil and acrylic washes, with the angel fashioned from embossing foil with oil paint decoration. The beautiful ballad that accompanying this image is on my ‘Professin’ the Blues’ album.
