Lines 1


Off with old and on with the new...I'm not sure if this new piece will work or not..I started this picture in 2005 whilst working a night shift at Holly House..a residential home for children in care. It's based on a photograph of a diesel locomotive at Derby railway station in 1985...The thinking behind the picture will become apparent as the days progress..but as a taster:..I have always been interested in the things that influence the kind of person I am today..I am a physical, spiritual, emotional , social and sexual being. I place 'sexual' separate from physical because to me, the driving force in all my motivation..(according to Freud) is the need to procreate my species...and as a heterosexual male, it is on this theme that I base this picture.
Confused?....lets see where this goes!

Looks like it will be an interesting piece, though don't think I will be able to walk past the train station without a curious look on my face now!

Thanks for visiting my blog adn leaving your kind comment. It is much appreciated.

Okay...now I'm worried about my love of trains, considering I'm a female. What does this say about me?
I am very interested in seeing where this picture will go and what you do with it.
