“One swallow does not make a summer.”
Aristotle, Nichomachean Ethics
Greek critic, philosopher, physicist, & zoologist (384 BC – 322 BC)
Rowan’s 10 pin bowling is just outside the main entrance of Finsbury Park Station in North London. This started as a live painting and was finished using photos as reference and walking by several days later. During these busy days I have several images that are unfinished on the iPhone waiting for the right time and mood to finish them. The low pixel count of the phone’s camera is very useful as it mirrors the level of detail one can put into a finger painting. The quick, blurry photos that are sometimes taken (by mistake or lack of concentration or plain shutter lag) capture the mood perfectly and work really well for me as reminders of the moment. I don’t trace the images, though.
Its surprising how full the Underground can be at 6:00 am! Some days there aren’t any seats available. Every Thursday I get up at 5:00 am to make a meeting that starts at 6:45 am. Some weeks I go by bicycle but lately I’ve been using public transport as it allows me to make paintings. This person was half awake. He didn’t move a muscle the whole time I was on the train.
