I’ve been thinking a lot about the River Severn again – it’s hard not to when I see it every time I go out of my front door and every time I drive home from any direction.
For years I have walked alongside it with my family and friends and talked with strangers along the way. I’ve met prisoners and fishermen, dog walkers and artists on my walks. The number of photographs I have taken is an unknown, but vast, number.
I’ve uploaded videos of the bore many times and named Flow Contemporary Arts after the river. And now I’m drawing the Severn too.
What next? Maybe I’ll paint, or make prints again, or publish a book, who knows? The ideas flow as thick and fast as the tides do. When all is calm and peaceful I can sit and stare as random objects float past me. And I can think.
Here are some links to River Severn stuff, by me:
