This hand-cast cotton paper piece, using pen and ink, acrylic washes and dry pigment, is part of my ‘Global Warning’ (sic) series. Most of these incorporate some text of a vaguely apocalyptic nature about the dodgy interaction of man and nature. This one is simply entitled: The Rain Falleth Down’.
And that is how I remember the Old Year.
But today in Brighton, on 1 January, the sun shone against all dire prognostications. So I’d better set to and prepare an optimistic sun-filled piece for the New Year!
