Drawings from the archive - (ongoing series)

Fishing Boats, Gozo island, 2000
Pastel on paper, 9 x 8 ins

On a small island off Malta, they painted their
bright fishing boats, so they could be seen far out at sea if lost.
The boats were lurid like a mirage on the beach.
The Libyan sea blazed on the horizon, next stop north Africa.

Barcelona Window 1998

Pastel on paper 11 x 8 ins

From the appartment you could see the little table cloths the catalans hung out to dry. The square framed windows into windows, a city of washlines and coloured flags against the hot bleached walls.
