Tunnel (buildings 12)
Well, I don’t like this painting, I am posting it up to show that it doesn't always work. We went on a walk yesterday, along the river (see Muddy Red Sketch Book for sketches) and up to the old railway line. Railways are strange places; I love them for their promise of travel. A rail trip is my favourite way to voyage across the world, I would love one day to “do” every famous rail journey that there is. But the other thing that they hold for me is a sense of foreboding. Maybe that is my Englishness coming out, all those ghost stories woven around trains and tunnels and tracks. Anyway I don’t like this painting and perhaps that’s why.
Sunday trivia question, or alternative title…”Get off the line Bobby” Do you know where that comes from? All answers in a sealed envelope please!
